    Abbott do a 2 week free trial of your first one.
    Then I have 2 a year , one for Christmas and one for birthday (to replace all the food and drink presents I can no longer have!) Then I use them at appropriate points in the year, on holiday is ideal where we eat out much more, and then I have a tasting 2 weeks where I eat some carbs and other new foods to see effects.
    You don't to swap over totally, they are just a tool for occasional use (for t2s of course, much more necessary for the T1s)

    Ah thanks! I'll check that out (though I have an inkling it's for those who already have a T2 diagnosis). I have actually thought of asking for one for Christmas/birthday - that or a c-peptide test (@lucylocket61 ), haha. We sure know how to live ;)

    Just tell them you are diabetic. They don’t check.
