The ReliOn Confirm glucose meter is made by Arkray, which makes the Glucocard 01 meter. The Glucocard is a top of the line meter that can cost a lot. The ReliOn Confirm is almost identical except that it does not have the same extensive memory (both 7-day and 30-day averages available at all times, etc.) and the test strips are not interchangable between the Relion Confirm and Glucocard 01 meter.
I was diagnosed as Type 2 about four years ago. I have used or tried almost every meter made. I used a FreeStyle Lite for several years. But, I did not like the old test strips; they did not wick blood very well. I like small sample size meters. At .3 micro liters, the sample size of the ReliOn Confirm is very small. And, the test strips wick blood much better than the old strips for the FreeStyle Lite (I understand that Abott now has new and better test strips for their FreeStyle meters).
For the price of the meters and strips, you cannot beat ReliOn meters. Where else can you get a quality meter made by Arkray, a great company, at a fraction of Arkray's usual retail price.
I highly recommend the ReliOn Confirm blood glucose meter.
As a newly diagnosed type II, it's a crazy world out there. I managed to do some online research and avoid the free OneTouch, FreeStyle and AccuCheck meters. The meters are free, it's the cost of the test strips that kills ya - nearly a buck apiece! The cost of the Relion strips is much better, $20 for 50 and $37-$38 for 100. The only drawback is that the lancet device could be better, it's kind of chintzy. And the case is plain ugly black. But for the price, this meter is terrific. I plan to get another one.
I am a first time user of any blood sugar monitoring products. I bought this item because I am pre-diabetic and needed to keep track of glucose levels. Excellent price and I love the color (pink). I did alot of looking and decided this would meet my needs. This meter sems to be very accurate according to hospital's results. This item comes with lancet and 10 lances, nice carrying case and instructions. I am very pleased so far.
When my test strips from my old meter, whose name I will not mention, went to $65, I just had to find something more affordable. 50 strips for this meter run about $9, a $56 savings! And the tester itself is very affordable, around $15. And as a bonus, the tester requires very little blood, and sucks it up immediately. I did a period of testing, comparing this to my old meter, and the readings were close to each other.
Now if I want to test more than twice a day, I don't think twice because it is so affordable. It has allowed me to get a better handle on my blood sugar. Thank you ReliOn for offering such an affordable way to manage my health!
Very impressed with meter, very easy to use. The kit came with instructions, case, lancets, meter, & logbook. You can't beat that for $9! The strips are only $10 for 20. Cheapest i've found so far. It takes a minute amount of blood and fast reading. Doesn't need coding. Records previous readings. Highly recommended for price and ease of use.
I think overall price and quality are excellent
Does not have all the bells and whistles but didn't cost Bell & Whistle money either. Well worth the money.
seems accurate....love the price...needs only a bit of blood...able to afford to test more often....thanks for a great machine...
i've been using the Relion for several years, as I pay for strips out-of-pocket, and need an inexpensive AND accurate meter, and these seem to fit both requirements. I like the simplicity of use and the small amount of blood needed, but mainly appreciate the accuracy (according to Consumer Reports it's as accurate as most of the more expensive brands) and the cost.
Meets all my expectations!! Thanks for making a meter people can afford!!
I just found out I am type 2 diabetic, and I am uninsured. The doctor gave me a free Freestyle Lite meter, but the test strips are about $70 for 50. The pharmacist recommended I buy the ReliOn meter, because of the lower prices on the test strips & lancets. I paid under $50 for the meter, 100 test strips & 100 lancets!
It is easy to use, easy to read, and takes very little blood. The meter is light weight, and slim. I would recommend this meter to anyone. My mom uses the Breeze2 meter & she is know considering buying the ReliOn, once her test strips are gone, so she can better afford the supplies, since her insurance does not cover lancets & test strips.
I am currently 28 weeks pregnant with twins and have been testing my sugars daily since I was 10 weeks along to prevent gestational diabetes. I started off using the FreeStyle which worked fine, I just couldn't spend the exorbitant amount on the test strips. I switched to the ReliOn Confirm about 3 months ago. Here I'm thinking I'm getting accurate readings, and I'm not. I am following a gestational diabetes diet and getting wacky readings. Decided to test myself twice in a row with the same blood sample with the ReliOn and then use the FreeStyle meter with the same sample. This was done two hours after my breakfast. First reading on ReliOn was 128, second was 159 - yes, all from same blood sample on finger. The FreeStyle reading was 88. I am going back to the brand I know I can trust. Apparently cheaper isn't always better when it comes to protecting the health of myself and these babies.
LAST YEAR MY INSURANCE ONLY PAID A PORTION OF MY NEW METER (ACCU-CHEK) NOTHING ON THE TEST SCRIPTS. VERY PRICEY: THIS YEAR I DECIDED THERE MUST BE A CHEAPER WAY TO TEST. DID MY RESEARCH ONLINE FOUND RELION TO BE A GOOD PRICE RANGE TRIED IT. TODAY I'M HAPPY TO SAY ITS WORTH IT ALL. GET ONE YOU'LL SEE!!!!!!!!
This reads non-consitent up to twenty point difference from my Ultima, Feels cheap. I went ahead and purchased the micro and I like it the best.
I liked it because it is affordable and easy to use.
This little meter is accurate and easy to use. I have 2 of them so I can check one with the other when my blood sugar is too high or low. They are within 5 points of each other.
Strips and lances are affordable TOO.
Love the little pouch easy to carry anywhere.
I am checking my blood numerous times per day and my testing strips for the meter I had were over $1 each. I purchased the ReliOn meter and strips and it is much more affordable.
Its the lowestest priced product, but it works as well as expensive ones.
I have the Sure Step and it is accurate. This one is 30 points off. I would not buy or recommend.
Only 44 points higher than my Freestyle! OMG that's ridicules. Forget the "savings" I thought I'd score here. Returning this piece of. Junk. Big disappointment.
