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
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!
