A diabetic has to constantly monitor their progress health-wise. For that, they need their test kits nearby. As they are looking to establish a suitable test strip brand for their use, they will buy from different suppliers, and settle for one over the rest. Those will most likely be discarded since they are not needed. The operating lifespan for these strips tends to be quite short. There is thus a huge loss when you think of the number of people with diabetes all over the world. You cannot keep them if you do not need them.
These test strips are not things you can buy for cheap. Most of the people with diabetes are not affluent enough to afford the retail prices. They struggle to get enough for their use. This has led to the presence of certain organizations who try to get these strips to them at a better price. They will present an offer to those how to have plenty of intact test strips to sell them to them, and avoid having to throw them away.
A diabetic will buy more strips than they need, for fear of running out of them. But as time goes, they find they have in excess. Some even have regular shipments of these boxes delivered to them. After a while, they may not need so many of them. Then there is the changing of brands of the strips. You could also have needed the strips but only for a while, such as during pregnancy, which is now over. This is how people find themselves with more strips than they need. You could use these boxes to make a difference in someone else’s life. It is also a money-making venture.
You are not prevented from selling the strips if you wish to do so. Purchasing these strips has no restrictions. You can only sell those that belong to you. This does not mean you cannot resell those clearly labeled not for resale, since you actually can. Those you can offload locally. The ones that will not sell include boxes that are damaged, opened or broken. It is however illegal to attempt selling those past their expiry date.
There is a lot to be shared when you sell to the organizations that will then give them out for free or at a subsidized rate. Some of these organizations offer these strips to those who are less fortunate. You thus need to find one who will good for that promise. If you stick to one reseller for long, you will get to enjoy even better rates form them. Make sure the reseller has integrity. You need to know their shipping charges, and the party to foot the bill.
