?Advice for Diabetic Lancet Device?
I want to purchase a lancet device with the internet. Which one? I'd like to use alternate sites other than fingers and probably would require a lower number gauge needle.
Would anyone help me by, giving reviews of different brands and possible where it was purchased.

Frankly, I have found they are all about the same. I have used several different blood glucose monitoring systems and the lancet refills fit them all, so it really does not matter. Right now I am using the least expensive Wal-Mart brand and the $8.88 monitor and I find it is as good as the really expensive FreeStyle set I have and maybe even better.
I found the FreeStyle (I spent so much money on) does not really work on other sites and I am okay with using the fingers.
I think the price you pay is not necessarily what you get.
This is the one I used and it's great

I am writing to tell you what an incredible impact these methods had on my life! I have had type 2 diabetes for 27 years. For me, the worst part of this horrible disease is the severe pain I constantly get in my feet. The pain is so bad that I avoid standing and walking as much as possible. I've got to tell you that within the first month, my feet stopped hurting altogether and I can now walk totally pain free.
Believe it or not, I even danced at my niece's wedding last month, something I have not done in a many years. I've been following the book for six months now and my blood sugar is well within normal range. I feel great!
I recommend you use the Type 2 Diabetes Destroyer to naturally reverse your diabetes.Source(s): https://bitly.im/aMQiF

Most lancet devices use a depth adjustment, rather than gauge number changes to achieve the desired effect, I use an Ascensia Microlet myself, which has 5 depth settings

As far as I know you can only use the sides of the finger pads and toes for testing & as annoying as the fingers can be the toes are worse specially if you're on your knees a lot.
The accu-chek compact machine comes with a jabber that you can set the power it jabs the skin 1 being softest to 5 which is really hard (and hurts lol), it costs £15 and is available from most chemists (I got mine from Boots).

Try Accu-Chek they have many different kinds. I like testing on the sides of my fingers because it doesn't scar like needle tracks of a dope addict. Mine was provided by my health plan but you can purchase them anywhere even online.
