It seems like every year it gets more difficult to get test strips. My doctor is fine with me home testing so I don't see the need to go through a service such as Philips Medical. It seems though that these companies are trying to put every roadblock in place that they can to force me to go through them. I would imagine this is quite profitable for them. Other than getting your supplies to you it appears all they do is forward your numbers to your doctors office. I'm capable of doing that myself. Are any of you getting your test strips from another source?
