I'm happy with it. My doc. can keep his nano.

I'm in the U.S. I've been using the Prime from Walmart. The strips are pretty cheap. They're $9 for a bottle of 50. Not sure if they'd ship international. My doc. has me using his Nano for half the week, as he is able to immediately download the results when I go into his office for an appointment. The strips are way too expensive, though. I am going to stay with the prime, give him back his nano, & figure out if there's a way to download my Prime readings for him.

Sorry - long answer. Short answer - $9 for strips.

Just another problem they found , I will survive as the song says. I wonder if I enjoyed my last life as this one is a bit of a ********* and i lived the sedate life as daughter of the manor,never been to a pub or a disco or tasted alchohol .Still it was worth it when ilook at the kids and grandkids

Jen, I say a prayer each night for you for healing. We are all here for you, and I am sure I am not the only one that wants to hear updates on how you are doing. That is why we come together here, to support each other through the hard times.

Jen, I always look forward to hearing about how you're doing. You're always in my thoughts. I don't think anyone here would ever become tired of hearing from you. Please keep everyone updated, as we're all on your side.

We're all interested in your problems and your recovery, don't think otherwise! I'm praying for your quick and successful recovery and watching your posts with interest and concern... just not always responding with a post of my own!

You continue to improve and report your condition to us in this thread!

Blessings to you!
