Re: RE:[IP] problem-free style meter



I also have a hard time getting enough blood with the free style meter.  I
have tried it on 5 on my arm and lo luck.  I end up having to pinch my arm
that it ends up hurting just as much as pricking with my old lancet.  I
thought this meter was supposed to need less blood?  That it not what I am
finding.  Are there any other places besides arm and finger that would be
accurate as well as relatively painless?
