|Today's giveaway is all about test strip and glucose meter safety.|
People with diabetes lives and future health depend on stripSafety~
Today's StripSafely lapel pin giveaway has a special place not just in my heart, but in every single person living with diabetes heart.
TestStrip and glucose meter accuracy is not only key to our good health, it's downright crucial - And test strip and meter accuracy is lacking - to put it mildly.
As of today, test strip and glucose meter accuracy isn't where it needs to be and that's how the StripSafely campaign came to be.
People in the Diabetes Online Community, led by the fabulous Bennet Dunlap from YDMV.net rallied together to make sure the FDA (and test strip and glucose meter manufacturers,) heard our collective voices in real time, and virtually via our tweets, letters and blog posts.
And while still have far to go as far as stripping safely is concerned, the StripSafely campaign is making a difference - The FDA heard us!
And we have to make sure they continue to hear us when it comes to Stripsafely.
How to win: Leave a comment saying why test strip and glucose meter accuracy are important to you.
Tomorrow, random.org will pick 5 winners & I will snail mail those awesome StripSafely lapel pins to them!
