As a reminder, Bayer has supplied glucometer strips to support each MiTy participant for up to 24 weeks. Please consider this when distributing supplies to participants.
To further avoid wastage:
o Calculate the remaining weeks for each participant’s pregnancy (i.e., a woman recruited at 16 weeks will not require 24 weeks worth of strips, but a woman recruited at 6 weeks will require more).
o Only give the patient enough strips to last between prenatal visits.
o Do not give the woman strips if she has insurance coverage that pays the cost of strips.
