Since the emergence of COVID-19, more people are shopping for everything online, including medical supplies.

For diabetics who are buying test strips and insulin online, finding a trustworthy source and knowing what to look for to ensure the products are authentic is important because there are real risks associated with purchasing re-sold medical supplies. If they are counterfeit or expired, the readings they offer might be inaccurate which could lead to incorrect dosing.

Make sure you are buying products from a licensed distributor, and double check expiration dates, product seals, and units of measure when your products arrive. If your readings don't match the way you're feeling, consult a doctor and call the manufacturer directly.
