After you do a blood test, how do you stop your finger from bleeding?
Poll dates: August 8 - 15, 1999
Total Votes: 723
Many parents use small "spot" bandages to cover finger sticks in children with diabetes. Adults and older kids, however, aren't usually interested in having bandages on their fingers. One-third of our respondents report using a cotton ball or gauze to absorb the blood from a blood test. Others press or suck on their finger to stop the bleeding. However you do it, the important thing is to test your blood sugar.
