Diabetic Lancets

How to Test for Diabetes using Diabetic Lancets

diabetic lancetsWhen using a lancet to test for diabetes try pricking the side of your finger, where there is more blood flow, rather than the tips of your fingers.Pricking the pads of your fingers are also more painful. If trying to get a blood sample and it is always painful, try adjusting the depth and force of your diabetic lancets.

Using alcohol swabs before using your diabetic lancets is not recommended because;

1. alcohol is an astringent which will tighten your skin making it harder to prick your finger

2. The astringent will get into your prick site causing a burning sensation.

Washing your hands with just plain soap and water is better to use before getting a blood sample.

Try not to use diabetic lancets more than once. Some people do and the lancets become dull and cause more pain than is needed. Ask your doctor about whether using the palm of your hand, a thigh, an arm, or another body part is an option for testing, to give your fingers a rest,.

Some blood sugar machines allow for testing from different sites on your body, such as the arm. Read your device’s manual to make sure you’re drawing blood from the correct place. After testing apply pressure to the site until the bleeding has stopped.
