Tips for blood glucose tests!


When you prick your finger for

a blood glucose test -


Use a gentle pumping action

(2 or 3 pumps will be enough)

rather than one long

continuous squeeze.


Always use the sides of your

fingers rather than the centre -

there are less nerve endings.


You will find it far easier

and a lot less painful!


Remember that the pin prick device

can be altered for skin thickness -

try it on the lowest setting and adjust up!


Doctors & Nurses & Hospitals etc please note this!
