About Lancing Devices
As a diabetic, it is imperative to keep track of your blood sugar levels. Every individual has a range that their blood sugar should be in to be considered a safe level. This is dependent on the person and what their healthcare provider states. The best way to keep track of your blood sugar levels on your own is to use a lancing device.
A lancing device is meant to provide you with an effective and relatively painless way to check your blood sugar levels. Lancing devices are used with lancets because lancets can be difficult to use on their own. A lancet is a tiny needle covered in plastic. A lancing device holds the lancet and releases it once a button is pushed for a quick prick. You can adjust the depth you want the lancet to go into your skin.
For diabetics, it is extremely beneficial to check your blood sugar regularly. It can be checked multiple times a day and a lancing device makes that process easy. By checking your blood sugar regularly, it can tell you a lot about your body.
- It can show you how effective your diabetic medication is at lowering your blood sugar levels.
- What level your sugar is at: low, normal, or high.
- The progress you are making in your treatment plan.
- What specific foods can do to your blood sugar levels.
- How exercise can affect your blood sugar levels.
- What stress or illness can do to impact your blood sugar levels.
AST (Alternate Site Testing)
Alternate site testing refers to using a different area to check your blood sugar levels. The most common site is your fingertip. However, for some people, the finger can be a painful or uncomfortable area to test. There are alternative options you can use to check your blood sugar levels that may reduce pain and provide some comfort. These are approved areas by the FDA as AST (alternate site testing).
