Important News Regarding TRUEtest Test Strips
TRUEmetrix Test Strips paired with the TRUEmetrix Glucose Meter is the first choice on the list. We highly recommend this due to the fact that TRUEmetrix is designed to be the replacement for TRUEtest. Not only is the accuracy on par with the TRUEtest test strips, the price is almost always the same or slightly off by pennies.
If you’re looking for more choices and would like to try something completely different, Arkray Glucocard Meter and test strips may be a good alternative. They’re accurate, require a small amount of blood for sampling, and are inexpensive.
Bayer Contour and Bayer Contour Next test strips are also good choices and are extremely popular among diabetics who check their blood sugar on a daily basis. They usually run 2 to 3 dollars higher than the options mentioned above but that’s to be expected, considering they carry the BAYER brand name.
With all of this being said, TRUEtest Test Strips should be available well into the year. Although they’re discontinuing, vendors have been stocking up in order to the meet the demand of customers and, as of right now, the current expiration date on the boxes are in 2019.
