Subject: BS: Diabetes... another thread
I thought a second thread in two years would be a good idea.

So, my buddy gets the free meter when he buys 100 test strips and he bought 100 lancets. The meter came with 17 lancets. The druggy sold him a pack of 100 alcohol swabs. The lancets cost 3 times the cost of the swabs. You clean the finger with a swab before and after.

Soooo... why not clean the lancet with the swab and leave it in for at least several days?

My buddy ain't dumb. He's a injuneer.
