On the first day of Blue Christmas my true friend, Ansley Dalbo sent to me a ReliOn Prime meter and test strips for checking!
To help you feel blessed not stressed this holiday season we’ve asked our panel of experts, friends and past Diabetes Late Nite guests for their recommendations to add to our first-ever 12 Days of Blue Christmas Gift List.
Our past Diabetes Late Nite podcast guest, Ansley Dalbo and her husband run a website where newly diagnosed type 2 patients and their families could learn the basics about diabetes through an easy-to-use video-based email program– www.DiabetesWhatToKnow.com.
Ansley puts ReliOn Prime meter and test strips at the top of her list! “This may not seem super-Christmasy, but what could be better than the gift of good health?”, says Ansley. “Checking blood sugar is SO important for people with diabetes, and ReliOn Prime is the most affordable way to know exactly what’s happening with your diabetes.”
We agree! The good news is that both the ReliOn Prime blood glucose monitor and strips are very affordable. Believe it nor not, they’re about half of what you might pay for another brand.
Ansley adds, “Diabetes is a disease that YOU can control…. and the best tool you have to do that is your blood glucose meter. It gives you all the information you need to stay in control and be healthy. Get your meter, test strips, lancets, and lancing device together in one place right now. You probably got a prescription for a meter and the other supplies from your doctor, or maybe samples. If not, call your doctor today. Then go to the Videos section of DiabetesWhatToKnow. com and watch the “How Do I Test My Blood Sugar?” video to learn how to use them.”
