I'm new to diabetes having just been diagnosed last Friday. I've been put on meds and have been instructed to test 4 times daily for the next couple of weeks - pre breakfast and then 2 hrs after each meal. I'm having a problem lancing myself to test. So far I've been able to do it in the morning, but the remaining times during the day I'm not able to lance myself - it's a mental thing that I'm struggling with. Anyway I've been trying to think of ways to get past this. Tonight I held an ice cube beside my finger for a minute to numb it and it seemed easier to do it. My question - is this going to affect the test results.
