No such thing: Hi. There's no such thing as a "strip-free glucometer". Sorry, but at least for the time being, you're stuck buying strips! If you're tightly controlled using insulin, you could consider a continuous glucose monitor with your doctor; with the Dexcom, you only have to use a strip + glucometer every 12 hours for calibration. But no matter what, you're stuck buying strips for now.
