    Hi All,
    I know this question has been asked before but we have never had a problem getting the "old" Freestyle strips for use in our Pod. However, we are on vacation and we had issue with the strips being exposed to water (yes all of them.....). The pharmacy only has Freestyle strips in a yellow bottle and say "Freestyle Blood Glucose Test Strips". There is no butterfly on the bottle but there is a small one on the strip. I know that these are not FDA approved for use yet, but I had seen posts of some using them? In a situation like this (we don't really have many options...) what has been the experience of those who have used them? Are they accurate? Any insight is much appreciated!

    We have been using the the new strips for months and months and feel completely comfortable with them.

    We've used the new strips for months as well and haven't had any issues.
