    Run don't walk to the nearest Walmart. These strips are top quality, easy to use and handle, and the cost cannot be beat. $9 vs. the $50+ I paid for One Touch strips. Thank you Walmart for making it cheaper for me to monitor my diabetes. As a person too young for Medicare, but with no insurance, I am so thankful to have found these strips and the meter that goes with it.

    Did a quick comparison with my old meter sampling large single blood drops for a few days. The average difference was about 3.5 on each set and the averages for the test only differed by about 2.6. My decade or so of experience tells me readings even on a single meter vary by those amounts in tests on separate blood drops (checking meter consistency). Conclusion is same accuracy for about one third the cost, a winner. The worst problem I have found is that the strip is slightly harder to insert into the channel on the meter.

    These test strips are small and not easy to grab just one from the tube BUT you do not need much blood to get your reading. Other test strips I've used require more blood to get a reading and it sometimes is quite difficult to get a reading, resulting in me having to do it twice. I've yet to do that with this. I would definitely recommend that you try this one to compare the difference. You will definitely see the how easy it is!

    • A. There's no difference, but both my husband and I need to test, so having his be red and mine blue is a way to not mix our stored results. The meter keeps track of your readings and gives you a weekly average if you want that level of measuring, so having two with different colors helps us keep our results separate.

    • A. What I saw in the store was that it was just color choice. They were both the same price in the store. Around $16 for the ReliOn Prime. There were other ReliOn models but the Blue and Red were the Prime model.

    Lot # 09133A I pay for 50 but only half of them I am able to use?

    • A. I switched to Relion from OneTouch to save money on test strips, and I couldn't be happier. I initially had a VERY few "E13" errors, but quickly noted how to eliminate them. Very little blood is needed to fill the test reservoir at the end of the strip, but the trick is how you touch the strip to your blood sample. I hold the meter upside down, so that my finger/blood sample is ABOVE the end of the strip; gently place the hard plastic side of the strip against my skin at an angle (like a spatula), and then slide the end of the strip upward until it touches the bottom of the blood droplet. That way, you're using both gravity and a "scooping" action, e.g., to make sure the blood quickly and properly wicks into the test reservoir at the end of the strip. Using this technique, I've had zero "E13" errors.

    • A. YOU MUST USE A CERTAIN VOLUME OF BLOOD FOR THIS DEVICE - TRY USING A SLIGHTLY BIGGER DROP OF BLOOD - I TRY TO GET A DROP ABOUT A MM IN DIAMETER - THEN YOU TOUCH THE STRIP TO THE EDGE OF THE DROP ON YOUR FINGER - DO NOT SMEAR THE BLOOD OR THE METER WILL BE UNHAPPY.

    • A. You need a thick drop of blood and let the strip suck up the amount of blood it needs.

    • A. Ensure that when you poke your finger to get a sample of blood that there is enough blood to flow the whole length of the Prime test strip sampler. I have used these Prime test strips for months with no problems at all.

    • A. There are instructions online of how to use the strips. Until I read that I didn't understand why I'm getting an E13 on MOST of my tries. Now I understand that if TOO much or not enough blood is entered into the test area you'll get the error message. How to do it correctly (and it's hard) is to touch the blood with the end of the test strip only. That is designed to draw the blood into the test area. If you just flood the area by sticking it into a big drop of blood it's a wasted effort. Try only extracting a small amount of blood from your finger. When the blood does get absorbed into the test area PULL AWAY FAST when it reaches the end. If you let it stay there you'll always get too much blood absorbed. These are tricky to use without error messages but I'm sure once we learn properly the price is EXCELLENT.

    • A. First of all you need to follow the directions to make sure that you have a big enough blood drop. Use the correct lancet with the correct tip on the lancing device. If it is the ReliOn Lancet, the blue tip is for finger tips and the clear is for your forearm. Press the lancet firmly against the skin so that it makes a dent in your skin, and press the button. Carefully push and lift the end a few times to make the blood flow a little extra. Then take the tip of the meter and put it against your skin about a quarter inch from the drop and slowly slide it toward the drop. Let as much blood in as it will take. The strip needs to be solid red up almost to the meter,

    • A. I'm a Pharmacy Tech and it comes down to what brands your insurance formulary covers. I use bayer Contour myself and as you can see they cost lot more than $9 per 50. These cost so little i would not worry about insurance covering the cost unless your on medicaid and then they will not cause this brand isn't in their formulary at lest NY UnitedHealth Care.

    • A. You can find these test strips on the shelf in the drug department at Wal-Mart. The price is $9.00 for 100 test strips. This is an EXCELLANT price. With my insurance coverage, I pay $20 for 100 FreeStyle strips and can only buy once per month because of insurance policy. I can buy as many as I need of the ReliOn test strips because they don't require a prescription and they cost less than half of my insurance co-pay.

    • A. You can get a prescription for prime strips but depending on your co-pay the product may cost less than your co-pay. so you end up not benefiting from insurance.
