Did anyone else get this flyer in the mail?
"Don't be fooled by other brands asking you to switch...You don't need to switch."
"Stay with OneTouch: Despite what others may say, there is no need to change from the OneTouch UltraLink Meter for your insulin pump therapy..."
I got it from Edgepark yesterday, and I couldn't help but wonder what prompted it. Could it be as simple as LifeScan knowing it'll be a problem that the Medtronic exclusivity deal has ended? (And by "problem" I mean "major loss of revenue.") Last I heard, Minimed was still the dominant pump on the market, and that's a lot of people buying strips.
I can't for the life of me remember what the new partnership is. Bayer maybe? When I'd first read about it, I did have a "Hmm...maybe I should check that out!" reaction. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Good luck with that, LifeScan.
