Re: [IPp] Re: lancets



Sarah,
We change Jeremy's lancet each morning, before the breakfast pop. He 
typically tests 9-10 times per day.  However, that's using 2 different 
lancet pens -- one for school and one for home.  I change the lancet on the 
school pen each evening.

We are changing our lancets for every single test that we do. We go thru on
average 6-12 lancets per day.  I was wondering if you worry about infection
with using only one per day?  We were told by our endo that they were for 
one
time use and then you throw them away in the sharps container.  Just 
curious.
