I am running out of areas on my fingers to do a BG check. I've been doing this for 33 years and my fingers are getting very callused and seems I need to go really deep to get a drop. Any thoughts?

Look into the meters that you can use on other parts of your body like your arm. Good luck.

Are you using the sides of your fingers instead of the pads themselves? It will hurt a lot less, and you will have twice the number of testing spots.
