Reducing the pain of testing

Fingers being sensitive, sore fingers are an occupational hazard of checking your blood sugars frequently! Reduce the pain factor by avoiding overly frequent sampling and by using the side of your fingers rather than the pulps. Also avoid using alcohol to wipe your fingers before a test. Studies have shown it does nothing to prevent infection.

It also helps to use different fingers - you have ten to choose from! This allows the site to heal before you inflict another 'stab'.

All our meters use very tiny amounts of blood, thereby reducing the depth of finger stab which is necessary. This can also influence the pain factor.

When should I consider doing extra tests?

Extra blood tests are useful during illness or stress

  • illness or stress
  • changes in insulin regime
  • treatment with steroids
  • pregnancy
  • when control is 'unstable' e.g. recurrent hypoglycaemia
  • when your level of activity changes dramatically eg. vigorous exercise driving long distances
  • Extra night-time tests are sometimes used to help identify the cause of nocturnal hypos.

How to carry out a test

  • Wash your hands with warm water and dry them thoroughly. This will improve the blood supply to your fingers. Avoid using alcohol as it stings.
  • Select a different finger or different part of your finger for each test you do. Repeated tests in the same place will make your fingers very sore and may give rise to callus
  • Avoid using your finger tips. Fingertips are very sensitive and have a higher density of pain receptors. Use the sides of your fingers as denoted in the picture.
  • Hold the fingerprick device against the side of your finger. Remember if you press hard, the puncture will be more deep.
  • Press the release button and gently squeeze your finger to obtain a drop of blood
  • Apply the drop of blood as instructed in your meter manual and proceed with the test

How often should I measure?

How often you measure your blood glucose really depends on the recommendation of your doctor/physician. Some patients may need to test (monitor) more often than others do.

As a general rule, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends that most patients with type 1 diabetes test glucose three or more times per day. Pregnant women taking insulin for gestational diabetes should test two times per day. ADA does not specify how often people with type 2 diabetes should test their glucose, but testing often helps control.


Do I need a prescription from my doctor to order?

No, you do not need a prescription from your doctor to order glucose meters and related supplies from Glucosemeters4u.com.
