When was the last time you changed your lancet?
You've heard the old diabetes joke ... change your lancet when it's time to change the clocks! (This is not a joke; don't wait that long to change your lancet. It needs to be changed regularly.) Our CWD community is on the up-and-up when it comes to lancet swaps, changing their lancet every time they test (23%) or skipping fingersticks almost entirely and instead relying on CGM results for their data fix (32%).
Good for you, friends! It's important to make sure you're lancing fingertips with a clean, sterile lancet, as it reduces the risk of infection. So all jokes and memes about lancet changes aside (have you heard about the one that says a box of 100 lancets can truly last a PWD's lifetime, with 99 to spare?), make sure you're pricking your finger with safety and good health habits in mind.
