    I use the Relion Prime and, according to these tests, it is not optimal. For me, it isn't really an issue. I tend to focus more on trends rather than actual numbers and my range of acceptance is fairly wide (<100-130/140). If I had a problem with hypos I would probably switch to the Relion Confirm. If I were new to a medication that might make hypos more an issue I would switch to the Relion Confirm (strips are still affordable for me) until I felt comfortable with the new med. If I had been taking medication that might make hypos more an issue but had learned to adjust to the Prime numbers I would continue with the Prime. It's just another of those YMMV things (in my opinion)
