whats the best poker? lancing system? i dont like the freestyle poker that much any other opinions on the best poker or easiest way to test I have been doing 7 to 10 times a day fingers are getting beat up!
It may not be the lance, but where you are using it. You get more blood and less pain around the outside of the finger pads, instead of right on the pad. Try to rotate to a different finger each time, or at least to a different spot on the same finger. Change fingers daily.
The pinky can be a challenge, but you can do it. Hang in there!
I have never really Stabbed on the sides that seems like it would be worse for pain ill give it a go as for the pinkys seem like the worse pain for me I dont mind thumb and any other finger I use the pinkys as a last resort! thanks
I have been using the one that came with the one touch meter and I have been finding that it's more about the depth setting. I have different settings for each finger. Also keeping in mind what Terry said use the sides to your fingers and rotate. For me ... I use 5 for my thumbs and index fingers. I also use 4 for my middle and ring fingers. Finally I use 3 for my pinky. Again.....your milage may vary.
Accucheck mulitclix is the way to go for me since I test so much. I hardly have any of those little dots/scabs we can get on our fingers from testing since switching. I believe the lancets in the drum are thinner than other lancets on the market so less pain. Definitely look at the depth setting. With the multiclix I don't have to go as deep as I did with other brands so I get less damage on my fingers.
