What lancets do you or your child use?

Poll dates: August 29 - September 5, 1999
Total Votes: 751

Frequent blood glucose testing has been shown to improve overall blood glucose control. To make frequent testing as painless as possible, it's important to use a lancing device and lancet that are designed for you. Kids need a very different lancet than adults with callused fingers.

Almost half our visitors report using the B-D Ultra Fine lancet. The next most popular lancet is the Softclix. Both of these lancets are designed to be as painless as possible. The B-D lancet is very thin, while the Softclix relies on a special lancing device.

For more information, see our reviews of Lancets and Lancing Devices.
