Because I am uninsured, I have to purchase my stips out of pocket. I use the Reli-On meter because it has the least expnesive strips I have found. Is it a good meter in your opinion?

Hi Gabby, Apologies for the delayed response. If you check out the latest consumer reports dated November 2011 they rated the top 17 glucose meters and the ReliOn (confirm) came in at number 7 with CR best buy and the ReliOn (Micro) at number 9 as a CR best buy both rated very good-excellent so while I am not "hands on" about this meter I do value the material from Consumer Reports...Hope this helps!

Yes thank you. I use the mini and it seems to work well for me. I have used the Reli-on A1c home kit as well. Thank you
