"Diabetes Freebies for You and Me!" Thread

Recommended Posts

EeyoreButterfly

Thank you for showing us this site! I am having fun and learning a lot. I've done all the surveys, signed up for the "Reaching Target" program, and right now I am exploring the Tool Box. It's a great way to learn about the different options out there for testing and treating- and getting freebies while doing it! So far I have earned 2 a1c tests, 2 boxes of Dreamfields, 2 tubes of glucose gel, an Ultra Mini, a Renew Lancing Device, and BD Ultra Fine Needles. Now, if they would only offer test strips. :D

Mychal, you'll have to tell us how you like it! I just watched the video for it on Healthy Outcomes and was mightily impressed.

I will make a thread when I get it. I have been getting a wide range of sugars i 8 hour period, like 2 nights ago i was 180 at 7 pm, took my shot and ate. at 9pm i was 201, but that is ok u-500 takes a little more 3 hors on me. I had a couple pieces of celery for a snack and went to bed at 11 with a BG of 149, I woke up at 2 am with hip pain (bad hip) and when i started to go in to go potty i got dizzy, then started shaking and sweating, byppassed the peeing and took my sugars. It was 61, no juice or milk, Had to mix up a frozen juice with warm water LOL. but got it up to 87 30 minutes later. then woke up with a 330 :eek: :eek: . Hopefully the alarm and the 5 minutes between tests will help this.

Would have but at that time you don't exactly think he best. Also because of my old meth addiction I can not tolerate Ice Cold in my mouth, too many bad teeth.

so true, I have been known to just stand there by the fridge or freezer with the door open eating ice cream or something like that and not even remembering it the next day:eek:

 

those lows get scary sometimes

For those of you doing Healthy Outcomes that were given a coupon for the Mini, did they email it to you or mail it to you?

The healthy outcomes site is cool.

 

Does anyone know how to get an infrared cable for the accu check aviva. You have to have one to download information to their software.

 

Thanks.

I got my aviva at walgreens for $10. Just keep an eye or their ads. They also usually have mail in rebates that make them free.

call the 800 number for Accu Chek, just tell them that you would like to try out the Aviva and they will send one for free.

They have sent me both the Aviva and the Compact plus.

I received my Dreamfields pasta reward from Healthy Outcomes today. They sent a box of spaghetti and ten-$1 off coupons. What a deal!
