  • I’ve had my device for years and lost my instructions long ago. I got to a point that I rarely had to check my blood glucose levels and completely forgot how to adjust all the settings (didn’t even know if it would still work. To ReliOn’s credit, it started right up with no issues at all. I even checked my BG on a family member’s device for comparison). I just want to say thank you for the simplicity of your directions. Short, sweet and to the point (and with illustrations 👍🏻).
    Ouch. Long-winded. Abridged version:
    Thank you. Easy to understand. Good product after years and years. Ta-da!
