Blood Tests and Insulin Injections
Question from Wasilla, Arkansas, USA:
We all have heard about the special care of feet for people with diabetes, but we sometimes use my nine year old son's toes for blood sugar testing. Is this a good idea or not? We have tried some alternate testing sites but he has a hard time getting enough blood from the arms, thighs, and legs. His best places are his fingers (of course), his ears and his toes. Should we stop using these areas?
Keep doing as he likes as long as there are no further problems.
