How stupid is this when I have diabetis Type 2.
Who do I complain to? The VA won't return my calls.

I'll retype this. Don't know where the whole thing went to.

Sorry not sure who you should contact, but you should pursue it. That doesnt even remotely sound right. I get 200 test strips a month.

Somebody is giving you a load of bull, Just when they wanted me to check my sugar for a year when I was on a diet they gave me 90 test strip a month for a whole year, Now this is when I was a whooping 500 pounds, I lost 300 pounds in 3 years, But after the first year I stopped testing my sugar levels because they where fine, I was more worried about my heart at the time.
Now if I was you go into the Patents Represents Office and talk to them. Also keep a log of when you called ( Dates and Times) The V.A. is so short handed unless it is a emergency or appointment related they most likely will not call you back.. I have some clinics that call me right back, Then there are some that Just never call until you file a complaint.
