I've recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I'm curious if anyone has been able to take their blood out of somewhere else rather than their fingers. I'm a massage therapist and I touch people's skin all the time so I'm concerned with having broken skin and contracting something. I know the pin prick is tiny and probably heals over pretty fast, but it's still not the most optimal place for me to be pricking myself numerous times a day. We are taught that if we even have a hang nail we should wear gloves just to ensure our safety!
Thanks in advance!
