meter that uses regular Freestyle test strips?
As much as we love the Omnipod, Jayden has started to have some serious skin reactions to the adhesive on the pod, especially during soccer season. The last few pods we've removed have had bloody blisters underneath them...not a good thing! So she's back to using the MM during soccer. I think she's sweating underneath the pod, and that plus the adhesive is causing her to blister. We have problems with all kinds of adhesive, but this one has gotten really bad.
So...I have a lot of Freestyle test strips. I don't want to change the prescription because I think we'll be back to using the pod in a few weeks. But I don't have a meter that uses the regular Freestyle strips. I have the Freestyle Lite meter that Omnipod sent with the PDM, but I know it needs the Lite strips.
Is there still a meter out there that uses the regular Freestyle strips? I seem to remember something about the Freestyle Flash, but Walgreen's, at least online, doesn't sell that one anymore. I know we could still use the PDM as just a meter, but I would feel better about putting that away until we're using the whole system again.
Does anyone know...if I have a script for the Freestyle strips, would they fill it with the Lite strips if I asked?
Thanks in advance!
