SD Codefree Blood Glucose Meter & Test Strips

Postby cugila » Wed Feb 29, 2012 9:52 pm

There are always those Diabetic's who for whatever reason cannot get a Bg Meter or Test Strips provided by the NHS. Recently mention has been made of the SD BioSensor Blood Glucose Meter and Test Strips which seem very reasonably priced if you have to fund your own testing.

Here is a link to one supplier in the UK via Amazon where the meter kit costs £12.99 post free along with several reviews.....all positive ! There may be other suppliers around.

[SD Meter]

and 50 test strips which cost £6.99, a great saving on some that cost over £20 for 50 !

So if funds are tight and you need to pay for your own kit this might be a solution. We have NO connection with either the manufacturers or the suppliers.....we just think it may be of use to fellow Diabetic's........

Thanks MC.....that's even better for those that need them ! 41

However, It should be noted that Home Health UK also ADD £2.00 post and package on BOTH the items, so the strips are really £6.99 and the Meter £11.95.

[Test Strips]

Always check the small print........still a good buy though ! 41
