ReliOn Ultima Meter


 

Pros: It is a inexpensive meter and test strips, I order my supplies on line and is shipped to my home. It is durable, and is accurate.

Cons: Only able to get supplies at Walmart, and maybe at some Sams.

Overall: I like the less blood, and cheaper suppies.

Insulin Glargine


My 2 Cents

Pros: It is the least expensive long term insulin, so that is what we are using.

Cons: It takes a while to get acclimated to my system, and I get low sugar readings in the afternoon. Doesn't help my high morning readings. For me it's expensive at $31 per vial and I need 2 vials per month. The pen price is ridiculously high, not even going there. I tend to not take my long acting because I never know when I will be able to afford the next vial.

Overall: Wish I could afford to take this medicine.
