[IP] Re: Changing Lancets

Oh MY :-)
I have been a Diabetic for 38 years. At one point in my life I actually
went 1 year using ONE lancet. I don't do that any longer but I really
don't like changing them because every time I do, not only does it hurt
more, I also bleed more. Go figure!!! I do wash my hands before and
after -- sometimes I use the alcohol swipes.

Let us ask the list. 

Has anyone had an infection from a finger prick from a lancet??

New or Old?

Dear John,

Is your tetanus vaccine up-to-date?  I hope that you remember that there

are such things as flesh-eating staphylococci and vancomycin-resistant 
stuff too.  The point of changing lancets is not to give BD or whoever a

lousy 10 cents a day; it's to decrease the probability that pathogenic 
bacteria haven't parked themselves on your sticker waiting for a ride to

a free lunch.  Take care.
