My pockets are getting more and more crowded as I gain more tools to take better care of myself. I am looking at my inventory and really the only comsumable that could get smaller is the lancing device. Right now I have the One Touch ..... regular tiny one?
And i also have one that came with the Abbott FreeStyle.
These are both the smallest devices I have had, but I bet I can do better. I believe the Delica is smaller than these. Does it need proprietary lancets or can you use generics? Any other devices to consider?
There is not a proprietary lancet that you have to use with a meter. I have about 4 or 5 from different manufacturers, and soon discovered the lancets are even interchangeable. I choose to use the one that I feel most comfortable using.
The Bayer is pretty tiny and can use BD lancets.
Thanks guys. Yes, the question was regarding smallest device rather than needle gauge. The Walgreens one looks very promising, though I have no need for the meter. It looks like the package is $10 so worth a shot to lighten the load.
You also get 10 strips with the meter and it's a nice tiny one you can stash as an extra somewhere like a drawer at work or the car.
For small size and a good device I would go for the BD mircolet.
To close the loop here, I bought the Walgreen's True Test meter just for the lancing device (thanks Shawnmarie!). The whole thing was ten bucks, with a mail in rebate to make it free. Exactly what I was looking for. Smallest device out there by far, but performance is still fine.
