    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.

    About a month ago I saw a Relion Prime glucometer at WM for a low price so I purchased it with a vial of Relion Prime test strips. I tested it against my One Touch Ultra 2 over 12 tests and found that both meters, using their respective strips, gave me exactly the same results +/- 3mg/Dl. I test 5 times a day. Cost: $9 Relion Prime 50ct, $68 One Touch 50ct. I switched immediately. I am also recommending this meter to my Diabetic Educator as a low cost alternative. This is important as I understand that medicare is cutting the test strips unless you are on insulin. Every Cookbook, every book about diabetes says "test your blood sugars and test them often!" These test strips give me back control so that I know when to eat and when to fast throughout the day. Thank You, coyboy

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

    • 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.

    • The ReliOn test strips require much more blood than test strips from other meters.

    • 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.

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

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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,

    • The readings NORMALLY given by ALL of these "meter/strip" type blood glucose measuring systems can vary +/- 20 points from "lab" accuracy. None of them are designed to be exactly accurate, but rather, to give consumers a simple way to GENERALLY monitor their own blood glucose levels, without having to go to a doctor or lab. I used OneTouch for years before finding and switching to Relion Prime. Correctly applying blood to these strips is a little trickier than OneTouch, but once you figure out the right sampling technique, there is NO difference in accuracy ... only a VAST difference in cost. Wal-Mart/Relion are showing the world, as I always felt, that other American "big pharma" companies have been grossly overcharging us for this stuff ... for years.

    • I have a One Touch that gave readings much different from the FreeStyle. The ReliOn compares favorably with the FreeStyle.

    • The accuracy is within the USA FDA requirements of +/- 20% accuracy. I have used the Prime test strips and Prime meter for several months and it the Relion Prime is an excellent choice. I have even dual tested alongside a OneTouch and the results were within +/- 20% of each other. I highly recommend Relion Prime from my experience of daily use.

    • I too did a side-by-side comparison with my name brand meter. I found it to be quite accurate. I've been using it for over a year and have no complaints. Can't beat the price of test strips; totally worth it.

    • Yes! I did 12 tests side by side when I had a one touch ultra 2 (both meters same drop of blood) Average of 12 tests meter to meter=Same Exactly. Variance meter to meter per test +/- 3mg/Dl. Testing Range 103-168 mg/Dl.
