Hi folks! I want to tell you about something very exciting!  As a diabetes nurse educator, you are all aware that I promote frequent blood sugar testing for optimal control.  As a person who regularly checks my own blood sugar, I am really excited about an amazing new tool!  Who out there wouldn’t love painless fingersticks?  Or, how about not even using the fingertips at all?!

Welcome Genteel!

Genteel is a virtually painless lancing device that does some amazing things.  First, it makes an extremely shallow puncture, so sensitive nerve endings are avoided.  Next, it uses gentle vacuum to draw out a blood sample, so no more squeezing your fingers.  Also, and here is the great part, you can use alternative testing sites and avoid the fingertips altogether!  Different sized tips allow you to use various testing sites to obtain just the right sized sample every time.  Finally,  re-draws are sometimes possible from a previously used test site.

Let’s go over that again:

  • Pain free sticks
  • No finger squeezing
  • Alternate test sites
  • Redraws

I love my Genteel!  What I noticed immediately after using it, is that I had no soreness or bruising, something I typically get with sticks.  Fingersticks were gentle and alternate site testing was a breeze!
