I have always been advised by my health team incl. pharmacists as a type 1-er to not do arm pokes due to results you are describing .Your results are amazing . I never checked it out , thanks for posting this Tyler. Most of us have 10 fingers and move poker around to the sides .

I had the same results. I quit using my arms. Any quick discomfort from finger sticking is worth more accurate results
