How much does glucose load test cost?

I went with home monitoring for a month, so I'm curious what the difference between the monitor+supplies was vs. what it would've been if I'd just gone ahead with the sugar bomb drink.

Not that I regret my decision or would change it. Like I said, just curious.

Depend on how often you are testing. 25 strips for my meter is 19.99. The meter was 9.99. (i get mine rx now though). Strips average a dollar per strip for most machines and most people test 4 times a day.

I think the OGTT is 200$ here. Have to look it up.

That sounds like what my strips and meter cost. It went through insurance, so it comes out of my deductible... but if your $200 is right on, I think the two methods would've been about equal cost.

Thanks!
