blood drop

Diabetic Supplies...

It's funny how quickly you can get interested in the various supplies that are available...

Within days of getting my monitor, for example, we ended up buying these special ReliOn® Alcohol Swabs with Pain Relief, which are AMAZING. You swab before pricking (and I also use them after) and they really help eliminate pain.

I also want to look into a different lancet device, as I've read a lot about how this one model seems to be more pain-free...

ETA: Um... NO. I won't be buying the other device which seems expensive to me and would require special lancets! No thanks.
