Frequent blood glucose testing has been shown to improve overall blood glucose control. To make frequent testing as painless as possible, it's important to use a lancing device and lancet that are designed for you. Kids need a very different lancet than adults with callused fingers.
Almost half our visitors report using the B-D Ultra Fine lancet. The next most popular lancet is the Softclix. Both of these lancets are designed to be as painless as possible. The B-D lancet is very thin, while the Softclix relies on a special lancing device.
