Whether you need blood glucose test strips, blood glucose meters, lancets, insulin pumps or other diabetes supplies, let us handle the details. We bill your insurance or Medicare directly and handle the document collection process, saving you precious time. We also send you convenient reminders when it’s time to reorder, so you never have to worry about running out of supplies.

Depending on the type of diabetes you have — type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes — you’ll need to purchase: A glucose meter. Test stripsLancets to pierce your finger for a blood sample. Urine test strips to measure ketone levels (for type 1 diabetes) Glucose tablets. Emergency alert bracelet.

Insulin Pump –Instead of shots, your doctor may suggest an insulin pump. It continuously gives you short- or rapid-acting insulin. You’ll still need to test your blood sugar levels, but you may find a pump helps you control them better.

Blood Sugar Meters, Blood Lancets, and Diabetic Test Strips –A blood sugar meter, also known as a blood glucose meter or a glucometer, is a portable electronic device that measures your blood sugar at any moment to make sure it’s not too high or too low.

Ketone Test Strips –When your body doesn’t have enough insulin to use sugar, it breaks down fat for energy instead. This makes a substance called ketones. High ketone levels in your pee is a sign your diabetes is out of control.

Glucose Tablets and Glucagon –When you’re first learning to manage your blood sugar levels, it’s not unusual for them to fall too low. If they do, you’ll need to get them back up quickly to avoid dangerous complications like seizures. That’s why it’s a good idea to have glucose tablets on hand. They’re fast-acting sugar pills you can take when you have symptoms of hypoglycemia or when your blood sugar is low (usually below 70 mg/dL).

Diabetes Medical Alert Bracelet –If you’re in an emergency situation, a diabetes medical alert bracelet or necklace can help paramedics or doctors treat you when you can’t speak for yourself. Many people with diabetes have one, especially those who use insulin.

Insulin, Insulin Syringes, and Insulin Pens –Your doctor may suggest you take insulin to keep your blood sugar levels from getting too high. It’s a hormone that an organ called the pancreas makes to help you use or store sugar in the foods you eat.
