I would look up reviews. I usually look at Amazon if its a product they carry because the reviews don't seem biased. Also there are alot of reviews and you can read the negative ones to see if their review seems valid. I hope this helps. Another way would be ask your local pharmacist which monitor sales best and be sure to compare prices of the strips
