Question

What do you do when two or more strips dont work out of the bottle

answer 1
I lose at least two strips from every bottle of test strips no matter the brand, usually because of a mistake I made. You need to use the test strips within seconds of inserting it into the meter. You must apply a fresh drop of blood as soon as the display shows that the meter is ready.
Timing is everything.

Unfortunately this is common with ReliON meters and strips. There is not much you can do other than call their customer service and hope they send you a free set of strips. Even then, it's not actually worth it even if you pay nothing for the replacements. I had decided a few years ago to not even continue using the meter and strips because they are very unreliable, and the quality control is poor. There are many prescription discount cards in existence if you don't have insurance (which is illegal due to a certain someone asserting license over us) or if you have insurance but still cannot pay the prohibitively high prices insurance imposes, even at the retail level. I wish you the best, kimmie. I am constantly on the search for low cost yet reliable test strips and meters.

The part of the strip w/out the hole. The hole end goes into the glucose monitor and the blood goes on the other end.

On the side of the strip, I believe. If the blood doesn't load from the tip of the strip, always try the side of the test strip at the top.

+/- 20 points of "lab" accuracy is NORMAL for ALL these meter/strip blood glucose measuring devices. Every vial of Relion test strips has a "control" range printed on it. When it's working properly, the meter/strip will test within this range when you test it with "control solution" from Relion. Relion will send you a vial of control solution free of charge upon request (e.g., visit the website). If your meter/strips test within that "control" range, it's working properly, within its normal range of accuracy.

I HAVE COMPARED THE RELI-ON METER/STRIP RESULTS WITH RESULTS AT THE SAME TIME WITH THE BAYER PRODUCT AND GET RESULTS WITHIN 5% OF EACH OTHER - MAYBE YOUR EARLIER METER IS NOT WORKING WELL - I HAVE TWO RELI-ON METERS AND THEY GIVE RESULTS WITHIN ABOUT 5% WHICH IS 5 GLUCOSE UNITS - PRETTY GOOD FOR SUCH A COMPLEX PRODUCT. iF YOUR GLUCOSE NUMBER IS ABOVE 100 - SAY 120, THIS IS WITHIN 8% - PROBABLY ABOUT ALL YOU CAN EXPECT OF THESE PRODUCTS - THE PAPER YOU GET WITH THESE TELLS YOU THAT THEY ARE NOT FOR CLINCAL RESEARCH - THEY GIVE YOU A PRETTY GOOD INDICATION IF YOU ARE HANDLING YOUR GLUCOSE GOOD OR NOT SO GOOD.

Question

Does this meter give blood sugar averages like the ReliOn Ultima meter?

The ReliOn ultima meter provides blood sugar averages for a 7-day, 14-day, & 30-day time period. I would like to know if the ReliOn Prime does something similar.
