Default what do I need to purchase for a Purchasing Walmart Relion meter system?

I'm over at the Walmart website.

I see -

Relion Prime Glucose Monitoring System $9.00

100 count test strips $18

Lancing device $5.84

200 ultra-thin lancets $2.52

Are these the items that I need? Any others? Are there instructions available how to use these?

Thank you,

Gail

That is all you need and the Monitor comes with a user manual.

That's all you need to get started! There should be instructions with the meter, but you also have us to walk you through it once they arrive.

In a couple days there won't be any confusion.

FYI the least painful place to poke your fingers is on the sides, somewhat near the nail. For me, my pinkie finger is the least painful, sometimes even no pain.

Also, if your hands are cold, warm them up first. Warm fingers bleed much more readily than cold fingers (which at times won't yield up any blood at all for me).
