Default Re: Changing Insulin

Here's a link to the AlphaTrak website. I'm not "pushing" the AlphaTrak, but the information and videos are very good.

Note: the AlphaTrak can be expensive to use. The kit costs about $55-60 online (Amazon), but the test strips can be over $1 each.

A cheap way to get started is to get the Relion Prime meter from Walmart. The meter is under $20 and the test strips are only about 18 cents each (100 for $18). The reading won't be exact, but close enough for you starting out. Then later after you become a pro home testing you might feel better getting a more expensive / capable meter.

Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9 years.
