Work as good as, if not better, than more expensive "branded" glucose meters. This is our second one. My wife have used one for over 2 years. Now that I have to monitor my blood sugars, was a "no-brainer" to buy one for me. In fact, I was able to get this on a price drop for $9.00. Coupled with the low cost of the test strips (100 @less than $20.00) and the free control solution provided by ReliOn, the ongoing expense of using this meter is nice. Have found all of the ReliOn brand of diabetes supplies and insulin are of excellent quality and price. My wife didn't have any health insurance to cover cost of diabetes supplies, let alone medications and insulin. But this line of supplies put obtaining them within the means of someone who has to pay for their own. (Note: Check out ReliOn Home A1c Test Kit. Two test for under $25. Have found them to be within one or two points of test performed by a clinic's lab. Most doctors have accepted the results.)

We bought two off these for my wife and myself along with 100 test strips. We are unable to get any repeatability. Testing with four strips front the same pack, from the same finger, one immediately after the other, the readings vary wildly. First was 159, second was 130, third was 164, and forth was 120. I simply don't trust it at all. My other meter requires a bank loan to buy test strips. This is what prompted us to try this meter. But at least it was consistently within a couple points in repeatability. I guess I'll call the bank......

A Decent Blood-Glucose meter

I got the ReliOn Prime because the test strips are so inexpensive. Formerly I have used the ReliOn Micro, which I actually like better than the "Prime." The problem with the Micro is that the test strips (Vampire strips I call 'em) are more costly than the Prime's. What I like about the Micro: Small size; It beeps when it is turned on and when the reading is complete; it came with a lancing device; the container for the test strips is compact. What I dislike about the Prime: It does not come with a lancing device; the container for the strips is round and not compact, like the container for the Micro's strips. The Prime does not beep, but I haven't fully read the instructions; there may be a way to make it do that. It is more difficult to insert a test strip into the Prime, and it is a more awkward meter to grip; it slips out of your hand rather easily. Until I got the hang of using the Prime, I got E-13 errors, "not enough blood," but now I am more skillful at getting readings. I am going to buy another Prime to use at work.

ReliOn is Anything but Reliable

I just purchased one of these meters as my insurance provided a Ultra One-Touch and I got a prescription for the test strips to go with that meter. Prior to the order running out, I asked the pharmacist in the WalMart about the quality of the ReliOn meters and test strips. I was told they were just as accurate as any other meter. I purchased it since my insurance did not cover much of the cost of the test strips at all and I have been comparing it to the readings on my Ultra One-Touch meter. I use the same finger and test them both from the same blood at the same time. So far the ReliOn has been off by a minimum of 21 points begin toward the higher side at every reading and sometimes it exceeds that much. While 20 or more points may not be so much for someone who is seriously diabetic, for a pre-diabetic those numbers at not acceptable. I would not recommend these meters or test strips. While they are cheaper, for me and my goals they are not reliable.

I Prefer My ReliOn Prime

Customer review by TwelveBars

I've been testing with an Accu-Chek Active meter since 2006. Recently my doctor changed my meds and for a while wants me to test before and after every meal and at bedtime. That's seven times a day and you can run through a lot of strips in a hurry, at $73 for fifty Accu-Chek. I saw the ReliOn advertised on television with fifty strips for 9 bucks, so I bought a ReliOn Prime. For two weeks now I've been testing with both meters side by side, same time, same blood sample, and comparing the readings. The ReliOn consistently reads about 30 points lower than the Accu-Chek. I don't know which one is accurate, or even if either one is accurate, but that doesn't concern me. The reading isn't as important to me as the trending, and with my new meds my readings are trending lower. I prefer my ReliOn Prime because it is easier to use, requires less blood, and is more compact... and of course the strips are more affordable.

are both the blue and red meters the same except for the color ? do they use the same strips ?

  • A. If you have more than one diabetic in the house it makes it easier to tell which meter is whose. That is the only real advantage I can see to having two colors. The meters are identical and use the same strips.

  • A. You can use any lancet in the appropriate lancing device. If you use another lancet in the Relion lancing device, it might stick you deeper, or barely stick you and make it hard to get enough blood, but if you do not get a big enough drop of blood, just lance the same spot again before you put the blood on the test strip, so you do not waste a test strip. This is true for any blood glucose meter. Lancets do not need to match up, as long as they draw enough blood. The Relion Prime uses a small blood drop, so it is especially flexible about what lancet you use. Do not ever use any test strips other than the ones designed for the meter, however. If you get a reading at all, it is likely to be inaccurate. This is true even between two different meter types that are the same brand. For example, do not use Relion Ultima strips in a Relion Prime meter or the opposite either. The strips will send a different signal for the same blood glucose and your result will not be accurate.

  • A. You can buy test strips for this meter without a prescription, either from the "brick and mortar" store or online. They are relatively inexpensive as test strips go, which is wonderful if you do not have insurance. The only reason that you might want to get a prescription for them is if your insurance requires a prescription to reimburse you. Sometimes over the counter medicines and medical supplies will be covered by insurance with a prescription and not covered without a prescription, including incontinence products and blood glucose test strips. As far as I know, any lancet is available without a prescription.
