So I got diagnosed with type 2 in July.
Went to town testing ALL the time! With a bit of metformin and a massive change of diet, an exercises bike and testing my blood A LOT, I was able to get my H1Ac down to 5.7! (it was over 9 in July) My doctor is happy and I am happy and am continuing to move forward!
But now my stupid insurance company says it won't cover the AccuCheck Aviva anymore. It is telling me that I need to use a FreeStyle lite if I want them to cover part of the cost of strips.
And I don't want to change meters! Mine is working!
They sent me a freestyle lite and I have compared it to the Aviva and the FreeStyle has read 20 points lower EVERY TIME!
I feel like I trust the Aviva (it has helped me to get this far) but I don't think I can afford the test strips without the help of insurance.
Anyone have any thoughts about the freestyle lite?
20 points seems like a VERY large difference to me...
