Default Compared the Glucopet meter with Reli On

Just checking to see if any of you have done this, I got a 250 on the Glucopet Meter and a 314 on the Reli On Ultima from Walmart, thats 64 pts higher with the Reli On human one.

Does that seem to be correct? 64 pts higher..

The Glucopet strips are expensive I;ve been using for years, the Reli On strips are much cheaper.

Maybe I will buy some more of the Reli On and keep comparing the figures.

Or matter of fact I'll do my own blood with both !!

I have done a comparison with the Alphatrak and Freestyle with the freestyle being much lower. Thats weird that the animal meter would be lower

It is odd that the Relion was higher. Might be good to check the GlucoP
et with some control solution or a lab test. Weren't you having trouble with one of the bottles of GlucoPet strips a while back?
