I made my quarterly call to Abbott to seek replacement of the new/zip-wik/butterfly test strips that I got from Medco. They said they would replace 500 strips and need approval to replace the remaining 400. I just got a call from Abbott who asked if they could simply send me a "Freedom meter" so that I could use the 400 strips that I have. I said fine (I had asked for one over a year ago when this issue first arose). I'm seeing only a "FreeStyle Freedom Lite? Blood Glucose Monitoring System" on their website, which says: "The FreeStyle Freedom Lite meter should only be used with FreeStyle Lite? blood glucose test strips and FreeStyle? control solution." Any insights would be appreciated.
