I was diagnosed with diabetes just a couple of months ago. Since I do not currently have insurance, my doctor recommended I get one of those free meters offered with a coupon. I followed her advice and and picked up a meter at the pharmacy. The meter was free after the coupon, however the test strips were very expensive. After a month or so, I decided that maybe it would be best to get a second meter to carry in my purse since I kept forgetting my meter when I went out. I started my shopping for a new meter online and wanted to get a meter that would not put me in the poor house when it came to purchasing the test strips. I found the ReliOn meter on the Walmart site. I read the reviews and decided maybe this was the product for me. I got the meter home and decided to test my glucose with both meters. WOW what a difference! My original meter was 30 points higher! Now which one was the correct one? I called my doctor, and made an appointment to test both meters against their meter. The end result was the FREE meter that required test strips of $50+ was inaccurate! The ReliOn meter was the accurate one and tested just a couple of points different from the doctors. All this time I though my glucose levels were up 30 points and they were not! The ReliOn meter is a super value, very easy to use, and since the test strips are so affordable, you can test more often without worrying about the cost. I definitely recommend this meter to anyone that wants to be sure they are accurate. I now own 2 of the RelOn meters, and I retired my original meter.

I love this meter and test strips. I've used this meter for over 1 year and found it's accuracy, cost and clean design to be the best value for the money. It proves once again that a "name brand" is not the best.

*What I learned about getting accurate readings, skip to the last paragraph. I am very into taking responsibility and initiative with maintaining my health, rather than leaving it in the hands of doctors I only see once every few months. After counting my glycemic load for several weeks and seeing decent results, I decided to really go for it and buy a meter. This product was recommended by a nurse. I believe this meter to be accurate because I have physical symptoms (headache, migraine, ear fluid buildup/infection, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, thirst, sour taste in my mouth, frequent urination and itchiness) which start off mild when my sugar is a little high and become more severe as it increases - the readings have, so far, been spot on with my symptoms. I am working on getting my blood sugar into a healthy range which will keep me symptom free. *I did have some inconsistent readings. A few times, I had readings with a range of about 20 pts within a minute or two. My 8yr old son finally figured out what I was doing wrong - I was holding the strip to my finger after the countdown started, overfilling the strip with my blood (which I thought was impossible, but apparently is not). When the reading was suspiciously low, it was because my blood drop was too small. The machine will still beep when the blood reaches the testing material regardless, so, have a nice juicy drop of blood for it and pull it away the second it beeps and the countdown begins. Doing this, I have not seen fluctuations of more than 2 points.

This is not the best meter I've owned, I don't mean its inaccurate, it just doesn't have all the features of the more expensive competition. There are many meters available for low prices, sometimes free after rebates, but I'm paying for supplies out of my own pocket, so the cost per test is important. If you look at test strip prices, you'll find most meters cost nearly $1.00 per test; the ReliOn ULTIMA costs about 45 cents per test. The sample size is tiny, it gives results in 5 seconds, shows 7, 14, and 30 day averages, has big numbers on the display, and everything fits correctly into the carry case. "Coding" the meter is as easy as sugar-free pie. Every box of test strips comes with a calibration strip that you simply insert into the meter, like any test strip, and in a few seconds the meter flashes the lot number of the strips and is ready to go. As another reviewer said, the lancing device doesn't seem that well made, but if you call ReliOn, they'll send a new one out to you at no charge. Their customer service representatives are patient and understand our needs.

I was looking for a more economical solution than paying $1 apiece for the control strips for the "free" meter I got from my doctor.(strips are $48 for 51 strips). So I bought this meter. I compared it to me original meter and found it to read 20 points higher than the one I had. I called customer service and after a brief discussion the rep told me she would send me a control solution for free. I continued to test for the next few days with both meters while I waited for the control solution to arrive. It arrived today and I ran a control test and found that the meter is accurate. I did find that it is critical that you pull your blood away from the test strip just as it starts counting down. If you overfill the strip it is not as accurate. I am overall very satisfied with the meter. It is easy to use and is much smaller than my old meter. I was able to buy this meter and a pack of 50 strips for $30. That saved me $18 over just the strips for my old meter and I will save $27 each time I buy my strips from here on out.
