Do Blood Sugar Test Strips Work long after the expiration date?
Looking for answers from people in Health Care Field or Diabetics from their own personal experience. How long after expiration date would they likely still be close to accurate. Thanks so much.

They still work technically , like if you put it in your meter it will still give a result but the result won't be very accurate.In fact the result tends to be much higher than using a normal strip .. so you can try but i would really suggest you get a new pack !!

* Own experience

Linda it may turn out to be a guessing game. When my strips expired I was testing at 230. Compared to fresh one that tested at 106..
So you have to make that
decision.

Good luck>

So long as the vial has not been opened they will be good for a couple years past the expiration date. But the minute the vial is opened and the air gets in then they start to deteriorate. Some vials are labeled as good for 30 days, and some for 45, and still others for 90 days after opening.

Read the accompanying info to see how long yours are good for after opening the vials.
