A week ago I received my new Unio Neva meter in the mail (and by the way, I love the custom mylife Diabetescare washi tape!). Alongside the meter, there were some test strips, a bottle of control solution – which I have not seen in a long time – and a lifetime supply of lancets.
In the past few months, I have experienced some of the frustrations that can happen when you live with diabetes. But they have been relatively easy to deal with, thanks to the features of the pump and the support from Ypsomed.
