Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.5 out of 5★áby 210reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Easy to Use The ReliOn Glucose Monitor is easy to use. My grandmother's vision is not the best, but she found this monitor to be very easy to understand and very easy to read the results. She was very impressed with the ability to go back and see the read previous readings which will make it much easier to make sure she has written down her 4 blood sugar measures she must take throughout the day. The little pouch holds all of the strips and accessories. Great value product! 06/11/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★áby Not at all what I was hoping for I am a type 2 diabetic that has used two meters that require prescriptions for the test strips, a Freestyle machine with samples given to me by my doctor, and the ReliOn Prime. My other machines give me pretty consistent results and are within range of one another. The cost of my prescription strips jumped from $30 to $80, so I had to look for a new meter, which I chose the ReliOn Prime. I was pretty happy to find something so inexpensive and at first the readings were a tiny bit higher than what the other meters gave me, but not by a huge amount. Then the crazy readings began.I eat a low carb diet, mostly sticking with meat and veggies. My readings are usually between 80 and 120. Even if I overeat at a meal my readings rarely ever go above 120. I take medication, so my levels stay pretty good and consistent. The first few days I was getting readings of 109 after waking up each morning. A little higher than normal, but I could live with that. After a meal of chicken and broccoli, my meter showed a pre-meal number of 90 and after meal was 256! I've had chicken and broccoli numerous times and never had a reading that high since I was first diagnosed! So I checked again a minute later. The reading was 132. Well, that's still a little high for me, but better than 256! An hour later I tested again. First number was 250, second number was 136. I've tested multiple times since then and the numbers are always random.Another instance was after having lunch a few days ago and including black beans, which I normally don't eat and knew would push my BG up some. The readings at 45 minutes, one hour, and two hours registered between 90-95. A light meal of chicken (just chicken) was 130! For some folks those would be dream numbers and may sound like I'm complaining for nothing, but having checked my blood sugar regularly every day for the past year, I know what my numbers should be. I can't speak for the other ReliOn products, but so far my experience with ReliOn Prime has not been a good one. 01/24/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great basic glucometer! I have been diabetic for 20 years, but bought this for one of my dogs that was recently diagnosed, because the test strips are only $9 per 50 strips. Mine are $75!!! I compared it on myself with my Accu-Chek Aviva, and the Prime meter tested only 2 points lower. I ordered the control solution online, (There is a toll free # in your manual to order), to make sure it is working properly, and it is! Highly recommend you order the control solution to make sure your meter is working properly, and it is FREE! READ,READ, READ your manual FIRST, and there are numbers in your manual if you have any issues with the meter. Like other reviewers, the only downside is the placement of the slot for the test strips. It is located very low, and is awkward/hard to see, but tilting it up when you insert the test strip makes it easier. Highly recommend this meter and will probably use it for myself when my other one dies, as the test strips are so cheap! The Prime meter is great! 09/06/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★áby ReliOn is unreliable ! I bought the ReliOn monitor and test strips to use while I was waiting for delivery of FreeStyle Lite test strips. The readings I got over a weeks testing were all over the place when compared to the log I keep. When the FreeStyle Lite test strips arrived I compared readings done with both. The worst was a difference of 34 points. I would recommend the ReliOn alcohol swabs, but NOT the blood glucose monitor or test strips. If you don't like the reading you get with ReliOn ,,, just take another reading to get a different result. 09/23/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★áby 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. 12/12/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★áby Measures way high I have used it for 6 measurements using the Relion and my Freestyle Light. The Frestyle has been compared to my Dr.'s measurement and is close to my FS meter's. The Relion is an average of 64 points higher and is not consistently different. But it is always higher, never lower. I have never seen fasting (AM) or after exercise readings as high as the Relion gives. I will return it for another and see if it gives different results. 09/12/2012
Rated 3 out of 5★áby This meter DOES WORK... If you have money to burn by all means get the One Touch Ultra or others (BTW the One Touch does not do well in testing against others). This meter I've been using for a year and a half as a backup meter to my Relion Micro. When I test with the Relion Micro and then the Relion Prime they are always within a few points of each other. NEWSFLASH...Your Glucose levels are constantly changing. Testing is a "BALL PARK" figure to let you know APPROXIMATELY what you are at that given moment. No consumer meter is 100 percent accurate. And even glucose testing at a medical facility will only tell you what your glucose was at that moment. I'm a TYPE 1. I need to know what my glucose levels are before I inject insulin to make sure I'm not low. This meter is OK to use. People slamming it for being wildly inaccurate I think you may have a bad meter or strips. I use this as a backup and pay for the strips out of pocket. I let my insurance pay for the Relion Micro strips as they are more expensive. This way I'm covered if I need to do additional testing beyond what my prescription is written for which is often required if you are sick or doing exercise or other physical activity. For now the Relion Micro will stay the primary with insurance paying for most (My copay for the Micro strips is still more than if I just pay for the strips of the Relion Prime). I may in the future abandon the Micro and go to this meter completely. Like I said it tests within a few points of my Micro consistently and I have had very few bad strips in the year and a half that I've used it. You can pay MANY TIMES what these strips cost and only have maybe a few points more accurate...And what does that really matter since your glucose level can change a couple of points within a minute. It's all part of the big money making off of Diabetics. Heck if you have money to burn just get yourself a OmniPod and CGMS...That should only cost you about $8000 a year in supplies...And then you'll have better (slightly) control...That's what the ADA and Endocronologists will tell you is best...Can't imagine why... 12/10/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★áby High glucose readings Very disappointing. The Prime consistently gives high readings: 45 - 80 point too high. I have noticed that other reviewers have the same problem. I have, in the past used the ReliON Micro and Confirm meters and they were absolutely great! With in 5 -8 points of my other meter (which I calibrate at Dr's office and compare with lab results). I tried the Prime because of the low price of test strips, but with consistently high glucose readings, I cannot trust this meter for insulin usage. I use a 2nd meter part of the time due to the high price of test strips for my main meter. I check glucose 6-8 times daily. I will go back to the Micro and gladly pay the little higher price for strips. I can trust the Micro! 11/04/2012
