RE: [IP] alternate test sites...re: arm testing



Hey,

As an alternative to finger testing, I sometimes use the ball of my thumb or
the palm-side of the side of my hand (hope that makes sense). Both sites are
easy to squeeze to ensure I get enough blood for my One-Touch Ultra.

Everyone in this thread is talking about the arms as
alternate test sites....can the legs/thighs be used
instead if your arms won't bleed well?
I'm still ok with using my finger sides, so haven't
yet explored alternate site testing.
