I also have a heck of a time when they start rooting around looking for
blood. I was diagnosed in 1979 and had lots of blood taken. That and
several non-diabetes related medical problems, all requiring tons of
bloodwork, and I am hard to find a vein on. They once had to use the
femoral. I avoided HbA1C's for years for this reason. Luckily I found a
great lab tech here and he is the only one I get to do regular bloodwork.
