Can I use expired test strips?

Question: Can I use expired test strips? Will they still give me accurate readings?

Answer: The expiration date on your strips should be printed outside of the box they come in and also they are in the actual tube they are packaged in. If you see that the strips you are using are expired; they should not be used and should be thrown away. They may not give accurate readings.
