Ten strips a day
Ten strips a day. Those are my directions: “Test 10 times a day as directed”.
I shouldn’t complain. Ten strips a day isn’t really bad. Some people have insurance plans that cover a lot less. Some don’t even have insurance (that should all change in the United States in a couple of years!). And as we all know, strips are too expensive!
But everyone who has a prescription has a prescribed “per-day” amount. And, in most cases, that is a perfect amount for a perfect day. Maybe the doctor says to test before meals, before bed, and before exercise. Five a day. Or maybe the prescribed order also states to test before driving, two hours after meals, upon waking up, and once overnight.
