My insurance paid for the monitor completely, and I have a copay on the strips. I used to test a lot more frequently, but for the longest time it's been almost always in the 90's so I am testing less frequently, not even every day. I test various times, fasting, after meals, and just anytime. For a while I got in the habit of just testing fasting, and that isn't as good as varying it. It was also a good tool for seeing what specific foods gave me spikes. On vacation I found that canteloupes could sent it up 40-50 points over my normal readings. So I dont' eat them any more. That feedback is good to have.

Congrats on the great progress you both have made!
