New Brand of Generic Test Strips that Work with One Touch Meters

Page Changed:  Diabetes on a Budget

Text Added:

If you use an older One Touch Ultra or an One Touch Mini which allows you to set and change the strip code, there are two brands of generic test strips available now that will work with these meters while costing far less than the brand name strips. Both can be purchased from Amazon.The first is Genstrips.  I have used these strips and they do appear to be as accurate as the branded "One Touch Ultra" strips. Even less expensive are the UniStrip Test Strips. I have not tested these, but the research used by the company to secure FDA approval makes them appear to also be as accurate as the branded strips.
