NEW INFO--The ARKRAY GLUCOCARDO1 SENSOR (which is the exact same meter as the Confirm) is NOT being discontinued (at this time). The Relion/Micro ARE......so if you own a Confirm/Micro, you can still get strips from ADW but you'll have to remember to order then in advance so you don't run out at the worst possible time!

These are the strips that will work in both the Relion Confirm and Micro
<link removed>

Make sure you order early enough that you don't run out at the worst possible time (like when your kitty decides to go deep sea diving at 2am on a Sunday morning!)
Thank you! I should test then against the ones I have left from Walmart.

I am pretty good at guessing what my GB is. I only really get into trouble when I get sick, as I am an eater, as opposed to a barfer, when I get sick and I eat too much.

I started taking it (Pravastatin) after quad bypass surgery because of its anti-inflammatory benefits, not its cholesterol lowering properties. I have reduced from one daily to one every other day and now at one every 3 days. The results posted are with the every 3rd day dose. I am getting some nasty reminders from my prescription mail order service that I need to reorder because I may be getting low on this vital prescription.

Their benefits are very little and your are consuming a controlled dosage of a poison. Turmeric is a much better anti inflammatory and it has side benefits as it is actual medicine. Also make sure you get your homocystine checked.

Carbohydrate poisoning is insidious: heart disease, obesity, T2.

I take Turmeric too, thanks.

Hope you can keep using your Confirm meter until some come along than meets your needs. It seems odd that Walmart is not making known that the meters are being discontinued. People are going into the store to get strips and they just don't have them anymore.

Ginger also helps. Side benefit: it is more effective on motion sickness than Dramamine and has no drowsiness associated with it. (There is an old study out there in Lancet where thy spun folks around in a centrifuge to make the motion sick and tested ginger against Dramamine.)

A friend on mine broke his hip from the disorientation caused by cholesterol meds (poisons). Hurt like the dickens. These meds are liver toxins. Not a good idea for someone with T2. And cholesterol is the precursor of every hormone in your body. And T2's have hormone problems!

What is your daily Glycemic Load? (I keep mine under 15.)

With Walmart, it is common for them to be out of stock on diabetic supplies, so you never know is something is discontinued or just out of stock. Walmart is not really a very nice store -- they are just cheap

I try to stay under 30 grams of carbs a day. Try is the key word, it is usually mixed nuts that make me exceed that on occasion, like last night, but I'm usually pretty adherent to my limit.

I try to keep mine between 30 and 60 with a total Glycemic Load for the day under 15.

Here is a good web site for Diabetics:

https://nutritiondata.self.com/
it lists Glycemic Load, among other things.

Here is one of those nuts your should not eat:

Nuts, cashew nuts, dry roasted, without salt added

https://nutritiondata.self.com/facts...roducts/3093/2

1 cup (who eats a cup?):
carbs: 44.8 g
calories: 786 kcal
fiber: 4.1 g
Glycemic load: 15

Here is one you should eat:
Nuts, macadamia nuts, dry roasted, without salt added

https://nutritiondata.self.com/facts...roducts/3124/2

1 cup (who eats a cup?):
carbs: 17.7 g
calories: 948 kcal
fiber: 10.6 g
Glycemic load: 0

I don't know about you, but after 1/4 of a cup of mac, my jaws are just plum tired!
