Monitoring blood sugar levels requires using a lancing device. A lancing device is a tool that houses a small, sharp object (the lancet) that is used to puncture the skin to release a drop of blood. Once the blood is drawn it’s placed on a test strip and inserted into a blood glucose monitor that reads and displays your blood sugar levels. Sounds painful, but it doesn’t have to be.
Traditional thinking was blood needed to be drawn from the fingers to give the best reading leaving sore fingers. But that tradition has been broken!The Genteel Plus Lancing Device allows people to check their blood glucose levelswithoutpainful finger pricks.
Studies have shown that glucose testing can be done on the inner palms of your hands which match the blood sugar levels of your fingers. Blood glucose testing can also be done on other areas of the body, including palms, forearms, and thighs, preventing sore fingers that can impact daily activities.
The Genteel Plus is FDA cleared for alternate site testing.
