Okay To all my DC Family I am openly apologizing for my comments posted on last nights discussion. I don't mean to be judgemental by anymeans. I will continue to do a one time use and dispose of my lancets as well as my test strips sterilization is my number one answer to over all better health. DISPOSING: I use kleenex, tissue, papertowles and roll them up and then place in trashcan.
I personall feel that we ALL have a CHRONIC deease and that we should be taking better care of oursleves and beeing unhygenic is not apart of how we should be taking care of ourselves. Things like using your lancets over and over and over could lead to other health problems such as a really serious infection or lymb amputations, BLOOD in general is not something to take lightly either. Yes I did get extremly disguseted with some of the things I was reading because I could not belive that the Diabetic Community could/would do something like this I had this thing in my head that wow we are really representing to the public that we are on top of our game. Our HEALTH in general. I'm not saying that your not !
I want to continue to be as supportive to my DC at all cost, but right now I haven't gotten that comfortable at re-using my lancets and the thought of it makes my stomach queeze/nausea… So that I don't run out, In beteween my scheduled Rx prescription refills I have opted out to purchasing additonal sterile lancets and test strips from EBAY and they are very inexpensive.
Again my deepest apologize to the community.
