As my mother recovered from diabetes-related hospitalization this spring, I was responsible for picking up her medication and her testing supplies. She had to test herself several times a day, and we were going through a box of 51 strips every couple of weeks.
My mother’s brand of testing strips is not cheap, and even though she has insurance and Medicare, the strips still cost about $75 from the grocery store.
I figured out it was a ludicrous amount, so I shopped around online and found American Diabetes Wholesale
I LOVE this place. ADW sells pretty much every single diabetic supply you can think of, from testing supplies to testing kits, to foot therapy and food.
When I searched for my mom’s Accu-Chek Compact Test Strips – I was amazed when I found a box of 102 Accu-Chek Compact Test Strips for $60.98!
So let’s go over this: The drugstore down the street sells 51 test strips for $75. American Diabetes Wholesale sells 102 test strips for $60.98! I mean, whoah! That’s TWICE as many strips as I usually buy for about $15 LESS than the local drugstore sells.
They also sell her skin-prep alcohol swabs for a whole lot less than the store, and you get discounts if you buy in bulk.
They also have great deals on gift baskets that are full of diabetes-safe snacks. You can also buy groceries there; I highly recommend you investigate Dreamfield’s Pasta because it really is an AMAZING product. Five net carbs per serving, and it tastes no different than the real thing!
The shipping costs range from $9.99 to about $25 depending on how quickly you need your items; however, if you place a $100 order you get free shipping.
This is a great store, they have a great selection, and if you or someone you love is foregoing glucose monitoring because the strips are so dang expensive, head over to American Diabetes Wholesale. I love it, my mom loves it, I think you’ll love it, too.
