If you've been diagnosed as diabetic and prescribed metformin, I don't see why or how a doctor would not prescribe a meter! I was prescribed a meter ten years ago before
I was put on metformin.
As I wrote before, though, my insurance preferred a particular meter (at that time it was the Bayer Contour) so that's what I was sent and the test strips were part of the prescript
ion which made them inexpensive. Years later when they decided to change to One Touch I was told that if I wanted to continue with the other meter, I could but the test strips would be more expensive than before although cheaper than if I bought them on my own.
