Common Questions and Answers about Relion blood glucose monitor review


Avatar n tn I am referring the RelionMicro monitoring,test, device because there are other cheaper monitoring ,test devices by Relion but require more blood sample. you have to pay attention to it. Another thing, I'd like to mention to first timers to use the Relion Micro monitoring device: When you first you this Relion Micro monitoring, for the first few days , its reading are always much higher than of One touch's, but after a few days, its reading is in line with the One touch's.

866901 tn?1505506236 Just two days ago I bought a ReliOn Micro glucose meter at Walmart for $12.00. A box of ReliOn Micro test strips (50) only cost $21.94. I don't know if this will help. I haven't learned how to use it yet. It's a very small meter and needs no coding. My Vet didn't mention buying a meter, but I went ahead any way. So far I have taken her in once for a glucose test and will be taking her again the end of the week.
1058898 tn?1275675151 thank you i bought a relion, it says that it is right on. so will see.
Avatar n tn I was put on a beta blocker, which helped a lot, and posed a very low risk to the baby (low birth weight, and low blood glucose levels are a possibility, but my daughter was fine). If your EKG and your heart structure and function are normal then you don't need to worry! No need to think of terminating the pregnancy. The worst part of it all is the anxiety it can cause you when you have symptoms, or even just worrying about it.

Avatar f tn I am a 55-year-old woman disabled with a chronic pain disorder. I have an extensive family history of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I was also diagnosed with Raynaud's Disease at 12, and have a very small bladder; so several of the symptoms for me can be easily explained away. Also, I never had a weight problem until menopause. Recently, I began gaining weight. So far I've put on 50 lbs in the past 4 months.
Avatar f tn but only one thing i can suggest is buy glucose monitor. if you in usa relion brand is super cheap. for one day test your sugar every hour and see if you get high reading. for hba1c 5.8 you need average 120. i am also confuse about my number. its opposite to yours. my hba1c is 5.
967168 tn?1477584489 I'm starting to exercise again and I don't think my treadmill monitor is right since it's 10 years old; it was 30 pts off my bp/hr monitor which is a ReliOn and measures pretty close to my dr's. I know I've seen others use monitors during exercise, can you please give me some names/models of good ones?
Avatar m tn well fasting blood sugar has been as low at 67 some days, when i had lab check ups i ate two pancakes before getting blood drawn for complete blood panel etc.. well my glucose on that was 68 and i had the pancakes 1 hour before.
Avatar f tn I use the ReliOn prime, available at walmart, very reasonable price on teststrips. Meter test a little higher then the Accu Check I have but seems to be consistatnt. Best advice I read on testing is (in my own words) Always test with a purpose. Before testing ask yourself what am I going to do with the test results. If your testing just to see what your glucose is, why test.
Avatar f tn s interesting that you question the accuracy of your glucose meter for I was reading the September 2008 issues of Consumer Reports that rated both blood-pressure monitors and blood-glucose meters. Only one blood-glucose meter scored excellent overall and also scored the highest for consistency- the Johnson & Johnson Lifescan OneTouch Ultra Mini. The Ultra Mini was followed by Ascensia Contour, ReliOn Ultima (WalMart), and Accu-check Compact Plus.
Avatar m tn I switched from lantus to novolog and the doses are different, I then switched to the 70/30 novolin (relion brand from wal mart) as it was much cheaper and the dose once again changed, although I am type 2 and monitor my levels closely, all insulin brands work differently so be careful and consult Dr. I did finally settle on the 70/30 mix, you can get the pens but it is much cheaper to just inject yourself, I get the needles that are the same size as the pens.....
Avatar f tn I found his meter - should I begin checking my blood sugar regularly? Would this be a better place to begin so that I can self-monitor not only to adjust my eating schedule but also to have some information to supply my doctor at the first of the year. Just not sure where to begin or what to do. The world is a lonely place without your parents to provide support and information! Thanks for your advice.
Avatar f tn my husband was 2yrs post liver transplant, that is the one reason why he is also now suffering from monitor blood sugar problem. my question now is about fluctition of his blood glucose, we have a kit monitoring it before and after meal, but there was time when we check it is high then after just a minute it drop down, we are really worried why is this happening? hoping that anyone could help!
490398 tn?1319940717 This is NOT a fasting glucose. My dad is diabetic and he has all of the tools to test blood. He has regular diabetes not Type 2 but it usually skips a generation. I had blood taken at the doctor last week, again, not fasting, for other health problems and it came back at 169. My doc obviously wants to retest me when I've been fasting and get an A1c.
Avatar m tn just got results of my blood glucose test and it was 7 which nurse said for me that was fine and now have neuropathy in my feet but circulation ok which is good. doctor phoned now and asked me to come in as there is an issue with blood check. nurse sort of said something about cholestel and low iron but I have just had a B12 injection.
Avatar m tn See Dr as soon as possible for bloodwork. Also you can purchase a glucose meter at any pharmacy to check before then. But you will need a Dr to tell you if it is def diabetes or not.
Avatar f tn half year post liver transplant, my question now is about his bood sugar, we are trying to monitor it , we have the kit and test sugar before and after meal, but there was time that in just a minute sugar rises and and sometimes went very low. is this normal for or the kit have a problem?
Avatar n tn When I wake up my blood sugars are in the mid 50s. After breakfast they hover around 76 or 82. They rarely ever go above 86 ever. Once a day they may hit 115 if I eat bread ..stay there briefly to go back down to the 70s. I am not on a specialty diet nor do I do keto. I usually eat a lot of fruit and seafood. Once average my glucose monitor tells me my daily averages are around 75. What do you think I have? Am I in a pre-diabetic state and my panaceas is just pumping out insulin?
Avatar f tn Is blood glucose reading of 139 ok two hours after eating? I've just begun self-testing and I've had three readings of 88 (afternoon, no food), 89 (morning before eating or drinking), and 139 (two hours after eating). My mother's family has Type I diabetes (8 out of 11 total) and my father developed Type II before he died. I'm concerned because I have very high "highs" and very low "lows" complete with blurred vision, shaking, anxiety, and constant urination.
875426 tn?1325528416 "Is the reference range supposed to be below 60 to be considered low even for someone who has not been fasting, as my parent was not?" One is supposed to fall "between" the reference ranges, not below or above. Doesn't matter if the patient has been fasting or the test is random [excludes OGTT [oral glucose tolerance test]]. A doctor may perform random glucose 'blood' testing to see if glucose varies widely throughout the day. Healthy peeps do not.
Avatar m tn I am controlling my diabetes now for two months without medication. I set up an excel document and print it off , you can fit two months worth of info on one sheet, it's so easy to show the doctor trends, I include how many calories I've eaten per meal. It's really helped me. I've lost 30 llbs in two months and have stayed off of medication.
