I have two meter's and, as yet, they haven't been questioned or changed. But my needles were changed and also my Vitamin D and calcium tablets for my Osteoporosis. Having a telephone consultation with my GP about a manufacturing problem with a certain tablet I take, Ropinirole, he questioned whether I actually needed them, without a face to face !! I couldn't do without them. It's all about the cost and saving money and we, as the patient, are the one's who can suffer.
