“Do it. Do. It. DO IT!!!”

I am quoting my daughter when she wants me to complete something for her: opening a jar, getting art supplies off the top shelf, or putting tofu and ketchup on a plate for lunch. (The Kid has some eclectic food combinations.)

But today, I’m saying this to you. Two minutes of your day can help all of those with diabetes. How?

Got two minutes to help shape the future of accurate diabetes testing? 

 

FDA is looking for comments about new draft glucose meter rules in two open dockets. Open dockets are a unique opportunity where the FDA is focused on listening to the public - we need them to hear us. 

The current rules for glucose meters are from 2003. It may be another decade before FDA asks for public comment on meter rules.
We have until April 7th.

 

DC is a town where the number of messages matters. Many comments, even if they are repetitive, will help the diabetes community be heard.

Other interests will lobby for their views. We must speak up for our views. Our health. Our lives. 

 

How can you help?
We’ve made it easy with sample comments, a step-by-step guide to commenting to a FDA docket, and additional guidance information. 

1. Review the sample comments here:http://www.stripsafely.com/sample-page/guidance/

2. Use the step-by-step guide to post comments to the dockets:http://www.stripsafely.com/sample-page/comment2fda/

3. Share this email with everyone you know.

Now is the time for the community to speak up. The more comments left on the dockets, the more support we give the FDA to make the changes needed for accurate diabetes testing. 

These dockets are only open until April 7
Don’t let another decade go by with inaccurate diabetes testing. 

Thanks and StripSafely,
Bennet & Christel

So, please. Do it. Do. It. DO IT!

And thank you.

    I did it! I did it! I took less than one minute. (I molded one of the sample comments to fit my situation. Easy!)
    Thanks for the encouragement.

    Did it. Did. It. DID IT! It was super-easy, and made me feel so good about adding my voice to the conversation. Thanks to you and Bennet for crusading.

Speak up. Let your voice be heard. (P.S. I have to approve your voice to stop the spammy spam spam that I get. Please, it's not you. It's me. No, wait. It's the spammers. )
