Anyone know a good place to get AccuChek Aviva test strips?
I know they have discontinued the meter, but I still use mine, and I can’t find the test strips on Amazon anymore. I’ve gotten a new Contour Next EZ, but would like to have the AccuChek Aviva as a backup. (You know how hard it is to switch meters!)
While I’m at it, who has a favorite meter case? I don’t like the flimsy little fabric one that the Contour Next came in. My old one at least had cardboard or something to make it sturdier, but it won’t fit the sloped shape of the Contour. Anyone have a sturdier one that they like?
I am really liking a hard drive case I got from Amazon. It doesn’t fit easily in a jean’s pocket but does ride well in a cycling jersey pocket.? I liked it so much I bought another. The cycling one is on the left and the other for other times.
I especially like that you included these photos. I don’t know any T1s so I always like to see what others are doing on a daily basis. This is great insight into what you take with you on the bike and just for every day.
Well, I’m type 2 on a pump. I have pedaled myself hypo a few times. It’s not often and usually sudden. The last one I ate glucose tablets and continued on to have BG drop again so I ate the peanut butter crackers. Between the glucose and the crackers I was fueled up to finish the ride.
I never know what’s going to happen so I like being prepared like a good scout.
