Do I need a prescription for test strips?

I am 31 weeks pregnant. The dr says my sugar is higher than it should be and I should watch what I eat. I have a bayer contour glucose meter and I would like to regularly test my sugar, but have run out of test strips. I know that walmart carries the strips I need, but I wasnt sure if I would need a prescription to get them?

  • Not if you plan on just buying them. If you want your insurance to cover (some do) you need a script.
