Question Test strips in the UK

Hi there, I'm having trouble affording strips to test my blood sugar.

I've bought strips online, which I'm not totally happy with the idea of but they're cheaper there, however it's still expensive.

I know I can't be alone because there's a petition about this.

Does anyone else have this trouble? If so what do you do? I don't want to stop testing as it really helps me.

I use the Optium strips and I wonder how accurate they are , I can take a blood sample and it can be 8.6, take another straight away and its 5.8 so how good are they ? and can one buy clinisticks now ?
