He is urging other pharmacists to follow his lead and keep keto strips aside only for diabetics.

"Don't get me wrong, weight loss is a great thing, but weight loss compared to a life-threatening diabetic condition? I know which side of the fence I'd rather the products [be] directed towards," he said.

Why do blood glucose test strips require coding?

Many blood glucose testing strips require that a code be entered into the meter that is indicated on the test strip container. I have no idea why this is required. Plus, what makes such a tiny piece of plastic worth $1 a strip?!


The strips work based on an enzymatic reaction between the chemicals on the strip and the glucose content of the sample. For any particular batch of the enzyme coating they put on a strip, the reaction to a specific amount of glucose can be slightly different


It identifies the strip to the machine and is used to help insure you get a correct reading. Plus what makes it cost $1 a strip is all the chemicals that are used in the testing, the research before they were made, the packaging and the marketing of them.
