I've had to test my blood sugar for 25 years and it has always been frustrating trying to find affordable products that do a good job. With no health insurance, cost is always a big consideration. I am sold on the ReliOn brand and use their test strips, tester, insulin and A1C home test kits and am delighted with them. I sure hope Walmart can keep them available and affordable.
My insurance does not cover any of my testing supplies - so I had to look for an inexpensive substitute for my One-Touch Ultra test strips. When I first bought it, I tested with my One-Touch & the Relion Micro meter at the same time (about 10 times). The numbers were always within 10 of each other - The Relion Micro meter was always a lower result - a Plus in your log-book! I highly recccomend this product and have already gotten someone else to switch to this less expensive brand! A+ in my book!
Love this product. It requires such a small drop of blood, thus preventing less painful pricking. People like me that have to check their blood levels several times a day will really appreciate this.
Strips work just as well as the higher priced strips.
Yet, half the cost.
After posting an extremely high fasting number one morning, I began to test the Relion Micro against another brand. In the upper range of my numbers, it was consistently 20-30 points different. Just recently I had my blood drawn and tested this meter against the results. The lab results were exactly 30 points lower. I used the calibration solution to test the meter and it is within the mid-range of acceptable. I have enjoyed how inexpensive the strips are, especially since I was uninsured for a long time. However, be mindful that the meter is very basic and it's possible that you'll have a similar experience and find your number inconsistent with the numbers you post on other meters or in the lab. To me, 30 points makes a huge difference in treatment.
Strips average 40 cents each, compared to others that average $1 each. I tested the meter against lab tests at the Dr's office and results were within 2 points every time. Meter requires no coding and very small amount of blood. You can't beat the cost. This is a fantastic product, highly recommended for those on a budget.
Not too sure how accurate these strips/meter are. When I use my One-Touch to compair, sometimes the reading are off by 20-30.
I used to use one touch ultra blue.
And paid $30.00 plus $4.95 shipping for 50 strips.
These test strips are over a $10.00 saveings.
I tried 2 tests side by side the readings were the same with in 3 points
Works great, use the same way as Ultra One but only cheaper.
I am getting 10-15 E-7 readings with a large blood sample. This is getting costly. I hope it was just this one box of 100. I have used this product for more than a year with NO E-7s. Now all of a sudden I get E-7 on 3 meters for this batch of strips. I emailed relion to get their feedback. I think they have a quality issue and they may have produced a bad batch of test strips.
I've been buying and using test strips for years and thought they were very expensive. When I saw the ReliOn meters and test strips and their prices, I threw away my other meters and started using the ReliOn products. The only problem I have with them is that my local WalMart store usually doesn't have the Micro test strips in stock, so I ordered them on line. I'm very pleased with the speed and accuracy of the order and the process is simple, easy and quick.
Good value. Works. Wasted two test strips before I learned to let the strip suck up the blood instead of smearing it on.
Least expensive blood glucose test strips, come in a plastic container (not individually wrapped), easy to use. This is the one.
I have just been diagnnosed. It was very confusing to find the right meter. After looking at several different ones, I decided on the relion. The reviews were good and after using it a couple times already I can certainly see why. Very easy to use, painless lanceing, great carrying case. Makes the whole process of having to test a little easier to swallow. You won't be disappointed with this product.
Excellent value compared to other test strips I have tried. Allows for testing on other parts of the body besides fingertips and the strips almost suck the blood sample into them resulting in very little test failures.
Very affordable and since I live on a tight budget, I need all the help I can get with my testing supplies. Since my insurance does not cover supplies, I don't have to worry about paying upwards of $70 out-of-pocket for some of my other brand-name strips or trying to fumble with smaller strips.
The price of the Reli-On test strips is much better than test strips I have used for other
meters. I also purchased the Reli-On meter and again a great price and I feel the product is
equivalent to other brands that cost much more.
best bargin in the world.. Least expensive test strips ever. $40.oo per 100 strips cannot be beat. Love the red machine, and can always have strips on hand insteaed of running out. A really great deal for those with no insurance, so we can be in touch with our numbers. grrreeeaaattt deal.
ReliOn provides affordable glucose monitoring products that are reliable and convenient to use. I highly recommend their line.
Very reasonable price
