From Cincinnati, Ohio, USA:

We have about six blood glucose meters in good working order and do not want to throw them away. Could anybody you know use them? We have two Glucometer Elites, two Freestyles, and two One Touch meters.


There really isn't a way to donate used blood glucose meters, for a couple of reasons.

First, used blood glucose meters might be contaminated with blood and are thus considered medical hazardous waste.

Second, most blood glucose meters are available for free at some point during the year at major pharmacies as part of sales promotions.
