Re: [IP] Re: lancet change - IP Funding



I also can contribute to this effort of donating unused lancets!!  But I
must let everyone know of a new glucometer that doesn't require pricking
your finger  and may need different lancets.  It's called FreeStyle and you
draw blood from your forearm with no pain  You only need a pin-drop of
blood.  I was skeptical at first but my endo. thinks it's accurate and will
relieve my very sore fingers.  Of course the strips are not cheap and I
think it will be hard to get them at first.  My pharmacist has to order
them.  My endo. just recently found out about them and  had samples of the
meter for me to try. It worked with no pain and the same numbers as my
meter.  I don't represent any company and I have no stocks in this company
but I had to pass this info. on with all this talk about lancets.  The
Freestyle website: www.therasense.com

Hope this is useful.
