    Old Chemstrips could be cut in half, even thirds, but that was the kind with the color-coded bottle “80, 140, what the heck, you’re fine” BG reading chart.

    Thanks Wil for sharing your success with the IBstar. It’s important to hear managing diabetes improvement. Notice I didn’t use the word “control” which I agree with you on a previous post. I always look forward to your Saturday posts. Thank you.

    I just don’t understand how these companys can just about give a machine to you for almost nothing, and the strips cost a fortune….
    Kind of like giving you a Rolls Royce but then the gas will be $1000 a gallon.

Lets just say i canceled my vip plan. you should check them out www. steps-to-success . org
