Ok, so a while back I got a monitor and intermittently check my glucose levels. Finally I noticed my test strips expired 08 / 2016 ... no wonder I get funny numbers!
Anyway, my question is this -- how long are these things usually good for? I mean, I can go to the pharmacy and look at the expiration date, but maybe it's already been sitting on the shelf for months and I could get longer lasting ones from a pharmacy that sells more of them, right? I just don't know how long they might be good for.
If they're only good for a year, I don't want to buy 50, esp. if they've already been on the shelf for 6 months. See what I mean?
Incidentally, these are the CVS brand strips for the CVS glucose monitor.
Thanks for any opinions.
