Mail Order Diabetic Testing Supplies
I have been hearing a whole lot of questions and complaints about not getting enough education or information from the doctor or the doctor’s office in regards to the diabetes diagnosis we got. Or about the diagnosis of prediabetes; what the heck is that all about?
And what about not getting a testing kit for blood glucose levels? There are such things as “mail order diabetic testing supplies” and don’t need your docs authorization to get them. Did you know this?
I totally understand where these complaints and questions are coming from because of what my doctor said to me that awful day in his office! He said “Rene, you have type II diabetes”. That was the end of our conversation that day, except that he sent a prescription to the pharmacy and to pick it up on my way out.
Then he said “I’ll see you in a couple of weeks”. I was feeling so frustrated, angry, even scared; all at the same time. Under my breath I said “don’t count on it”. And of course, he sent me home all stressed out which is horrible for us. It only creates another rush of cortisol through our very system that we are supposed to be healing.
Shouldn’t doctors be a little more forthcoming when announcing for the first time that you now have a potentially fatal disease? I couldn’t believe my doc’s attitude about the whole thing. I asked him about mail order diabetic testing supplies because that is how I normally get my prescriptions. He said “you don’t need them now” and walked out of the room.
His nurse totally understood why I was so upset and she did say that maybe he is just more upset that another patient is in the epidemic pool that there is not much he can do about. She also added that there are mail order diabetic testing supplies you can get online, if you want to. She had given me something to think about though.
It was almost like he had something more to say about it, and believe me, I knew that he had a whole lot to say about it because he knows the truth about diabetes. But he was holding back. Makes me wonder if he was going to be honest about the fact that it is curable? I will be hitting this “curable” view really hard in an upcoming post; stay tuned!
Anyway, I wasn’t given any tools to help me work on bringing my glucose levels down or under control. I wasn’t told what those numbers should be or what they meant. I wasn’t told that I should change my diet. I wasn’t told that I needed to lose weight (although it is always a thought in my head). I wasn’t told that if I wanted to get these tools on my own that they are available by mail order, diabetic testing supplies can be found almost everywhere.
Well, I did a little investigating to find some places where you can mail order diabetic testing supplies from.
There are several places that you can order your supplies from if your insurance doesn’t cover them, or in some cases your doctor will not prescribe them for you because “you don’t really need them” is the thought process. And do you know why they have this thought process?
I’m so angry about it that I’m ready to explode but I’m saving it for a whole other post! Their thoughts are “hee hee; you’re never going to get well from this disease anyway, so you don’t need to monitor your glucose levels”. Yep, you read it right and I am going to tell you all about it in another post. It might take several posts now that I think about it.
Mail Order Diabetic Testing Supplies
This first particular site I found while using another diabetes recipe site. You can sign up at Type 2 and receive mail order diabetic testing supplies from here. The cost is about $20.00 per month but they ship everything for a whole year and charge you for the same all at once. Total annual cost is $250 US dollars.
Here is what you get from Type 2:
- GlucoRx blood glucose meter
- Structured testing plan
- 400 test strips annually
- 400 lancets
- Delivered annually
- Dedicated 24/7 support
CWI Medical is another full service medical supply house where you can place your orders via mail order diabetic testing supplies. For the last 15 years, CWI Medical has been servicing the nation with top quality health care products and medical supplies. They don’t have a kit like the above site, so you piece together what you want to order from them. I would simply order the same things that they supply at Type 2.
There is yet one more place where I looked that has pages and pages of glucose monitoring kits that you can mail order diabetic testing supplies from. So make sure you check this one out!
There is one thing that none of the kits come supplied with and that is a box of alcohol prep wipes. I got mine off of the shelf at my pharmacy and these little alcohol swipe pads are a necessity! So make sure that you order at least one box; they are not expensive and you need them any time that you puncture your skin.
Vitopia is yet another supplements and supplies house that even offers special education in the absence of what you are getting or not; from your health care providers. Their supplements are pretty reasonable compared to others that I have shopped. Use these Diabetes supplements that support the regulation of insulin action.
As is with many developers and suppliers of supplements, Vitopia does carry a full line of weight loss help as well. Maintain healthy body weight and body fat with weight management supplements.
Vitopia even offers supplements that were developed to help with the ever crippling disease of obesity. Increasing lean body mass and maintaining a healthy weight with obesity supplements should be part of our goals in managing our diabetes; pre, type 1 or type 2.
You can do all of this with Vitopia for a fraction of what it would cost you to not lose weight, getting rid of your obese self, so that we can control our diabetes with supplements instead of the dangerous drugs we are pumping our selves full of every single day.
Please remember that these dangerous drugs we are throwing into our bodies are just there to either mask or help us to maintain daily; they are not there for and will never, heal our bodies with these drugs! I HOPE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I JUST SAID.
These dangerous drugs we are taking? They were not meant to ever cure us of this disease and they never will. They will help us to maintain our health for a while until the diabetes gets worse and then the doctor adds another pill on to our already dangerous regimen.
PLEASE, please, whatever you do; make it your number one goal to eventually get off of every single one of these dangerous drugs we are taking to maintain a daily livable life. You can cure your diabetes with supplements and a healthy diet.
