5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on controlling diabetes, 14 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Dr Bernstein's Diabetes Solution: A Complete Guide To Achieving Normal Blood Sugars, 4th Edition (Hardcover)
This is an excellent book. It has clear instructions on how to control your diabetes and references to the science they are based on. I brought my own blood sugars under control in 3 weeks, establishing the truth of his words for myself. Many British people with type 2 diabetes will not be prescribed a blood sugar monitor or the strips that go with it but they are relatively cheap to buy and the strips can be bought on the Internet at more reasonable prices. Conversion to the American mg/dl from mmol/l is easy with tables available from diabetes uk or just divide by 18! I cannot recommend this book to highly to anyone with this condition. Would that our GPs and diabetes professionals would read it.

I do not live in the UK so what I say may not be possible.

Walmart in the US sells Relion meters and testing strips (actually mfg in the UK!) that are cheaper than probably any other type. The test strips are individually foil wrapped so will maintain integrity longer than most others that are exposed to air every time you test.

I paid $36 USD for 100 test strips a month ago. Abbot Labs makes these devices-the same company selling more expensive equipment as well.

It might be worth checking out.
