Nobody ever dared to claim that drawing a drop of blood to check our blood sugar levels could be gentle. Until now.
A new company named Genteel has just started shipping its “gentle lancing instrument.” The box that it comes in says right on it that it give us “blood testing without pain!”
For many of us who have diabetes using a blood glucose meter and lancing device is the most painful thing we have to do. And most of us perform this onerous chore several times a day.
