I hate it to my finger look like pin cusions it hurts and I don't like needles so pricking my finger is a chore. If there is another way let me know…

Who you telling, sometimes I feel as though I've run out of spaces on all my fingers, and they look so bad on the tips all dry and stuff. I keep on plenty of lotions too, nothing works. But we must test our sugars daily, Sometimes I to believe Im on a nice hot beach in Hawaii before I prick my finger. LOL. Hopefully it'll get better.

The sides of the finger, instead of the tip is less sensitive. And, some one on here suggested that each prick you use a different finger, so they have a chance to recover…4 sticks (5 if you use the thumb) before starting over on the first. And, you can always try the other hand…8 to 10 pricks before starting over again. Good luck. S2

Yep it stings some times
I test on my arms 1/2 the time but I know it off by 5 points iether high or low at lest.
Best wishes

Amen to that…I test a lot because I am still trying to figure out which foods cause me to spike so needless to say my finger tips are like a pin cushion. My meter came with some kind of gadget to test in the arm but I never tried it…fact is I think I lost it. Maybe someday there will be an easier way…:)
