    If you are a diabetic (like I am), PLEASE read this!!!

    WASHINGTON - The government warned diabetics Friday to watch for counterfeit versions of test strips commonly used to monitor blood sugar levels. The test strips, for use in glucose monitors made by a Johnson & Johnson company, were distributed nationwide, the Food and Drug Administration said in a public alert.

    That's just messed up, I hope they'll take responsibility if someone dies because of this.

    I hope the counterfeiters end up dead somewhere.
    My dad was a diabetic and it led to his death.
    He was only 47.

    Glad I took the time to read some PP.O between studying for mid-terms! My strips came yesterday from Nation-Med. Codes listed are not mine. Thanks for the heads up.

    Thanks, Shock, for any info on diabetes. I always stay tuned to this disease because my Dad is diabetic and so is my Grandfather on my Mother's side, so I know that their is a good chance I'll be.
