    There has only ever been about 5 meters that work directly with the mySugr app. One is the contour next one but I doubt your go will give you those strips as they are more expensive.. I have an accuchek connect meter which also works but again the strips are more expensive than the mobile

    Thanks for that am still trying to get script as consultant wrote to gp saying to give me accucheck strips as bolus info helps me loads ,tried explaining to nurse that expert meter was being phased out so need change to cassettes and even added that it was cheaper to nhs than the strips but to no avail however have contacted consultant asking for him to contact gp about this change so crossed fingers it happens

    In fairness your doctor is being a **** it’s on the accuchek website that the cost of the cassettes has been reduced to the nhs I think the nhs now pays £7.50 per cassette where as the aviva test strips are about £10.75 per pot to the nhs.. if your consultant instructs him to prescribe them he will

    Or phone accuchek and push for a replacement expert they send me one only about 2 months ago
