Re: [IP] laser lancet



Laura,
So far all the laser lancet gizmos I have heard of  really HURT! and the
smell of "burning flesh" is a turn-off to most people.  Would this lancet be
less painful than a regular needle stick?  Also, by saying it would work for
5 years of testing, is that testing 3-4 times a day, or 8+ ?
