Hmmm... it seems to want 340 dollars off me before I can get in and read
the articles. Is it worth it? Or did I press the wrong buttons? Or could we
have your user name and password, Morag???

I asked my German diabetes specialist for a prescription for a TheraSense
what-not last June, and he immediately told me there were concerns about
the forearm blood being 30 minutes "old". I had no strong feelings, so I
didn't insist on having one. Sort of inevitable that part of the body well
served with blood vessels is going to be well served with nerves, and vice
versa. I can also see a case where I might be about to go on stage (I work
as a professional singer), check my forearm bg and it's OK, but I'm
actually about to go hypo.

Is this problem particular to people with poor circulation, or do we all
have areas where blood is not up to date?
