It is one thing that most of us with Type 2 or Type 1 Diabetes deal with multiple times a day—that awful pricking of our fingers.
I have to prick my fingers at least four times ever day. Some people do it more, some less. The two main fingers that I use—my middle and ring finger on my left hand—have little marks on them from the hundreds of thousands of times that I have pricked my fingers for my daily blood sugar tests.
But what if I told you that you could save hundreds of thousands of dollars on your meter, lancets and test strips? What if I told you that you wouldn’t have to prick your fingers again? And it doesn’t involve sticking a needle into your arm with a constant wear testing patch, either. There is no needle prick at all!
If I told you that this device existed would you be so excited to get it? I know I would be and around the end of the month I will be getting mine and trying it out! No more pricking the finger—ever. What I am talking aobut is a convenient, pain-free and accurate device that can measure your blood sugar many times a day and can be used by up to four people.
Yes! You read that right! four people can monitor and track their blood sugar and not have to prick their fingers—EVER!
Keep watching my site for more on this device! If you are like me and are sick of the prick—then this is a device that you are going to want to know more about!
Thank you for visiting my site. I would love to hear your thoughts on this post. Please leave questions or comments below and I will get back to you very soon!

Hey nice visuals on your website, didn’t know how to open the post at first though, anyways I am fairly interested.as a couple members of my family have to deal with the prick on a daily basis. They say it doesn’t hurt, but I guessing it really annoying. Do you have any more info on the new product that is coming? Sam Frederiksen web master at bestplace2
Thanks for visiting my site, Sam! I’m glad you liked the visuals! I will have more information very soon. I should be receiving mine soon and then I will be able to talk more knowledgably about how it works! The daily pricking usually doesn’t hurt, but it is a pain to have to stop and do it all the time. Then remember to go to the drug store to get my supplies. I will still have to take it with me to test, but the testing is so much easier. That’s a big deal! And once the device is paid for, no more buying supplies! That’s a HUGE thing!
This is very interesting I actually over heard a discussion my friend was having with another fellow the other day about something similar. I will be bookmarking and checking back to read about your experience using this , can you give any hints as to how it works ?
Thanks for visiting my site, Rick.
I can’t give a lot of details at this point, but soon! I want to be able to test it out before I tell people how “great” it is! I think it will be amazing, but I just want to make sure first! Continue to check back on my site as I will be posting regularly about the device!
Having a family member who suffers from Type 1 Diabetes, I can very well relate to this post. My brother-in-law who has been diabetic for almost 10 years now often complains about having to prick himself twice or even three times a day to check his blood sugar. There are even times when he almost doesn’t want to do it anymore. So I really wish there is some kind of an affordable device that allows him to monitor his blood sugar several times a day accurately, without having to prick himself.
I will be coming back to your site from time to time to read your update about this device, thank you for sharing Karin. I really hope this is the answer to everyone who is suffering from diabetes.
Thanks for visiting my site. The daily pricking of our fingers is a big pain, both in the fingers and in the pocket. The device I am talking about will make pricking the finger or any other body part no longer necessary to test the blood sugar. I am very anxious to start using mine once it is shipped so that I can share more! The initial cost of the device is rather expensive, but when compared with the cost of strips and lancets and stuff that has to be renewed every day, I think within a few months, the device will more than pay for itself over and over again. And no more pricking the finger!
ahhh just observing those prick pictures makes me sick. That should be so annoying, I hate needles with every single atom of my body. I have no diabetes, thank goodness! However I am interested on topics like nutrition and health. I also have some friends that suffer from this disease.
I have some question that I would like you to answer, please
What is the name of that special device?
How much does it cost?
How does it work?
Is the device safe?
Thanks for visiting my site Fredery. I hear you! I really hate the needles, too. I almost pass out when I have to give myself my shots.
I haven’t released all the pertinent details of the device, but I will have a video on my site very soon about it. It is quite expensive around $500, but when you compare that to the cost of test strips, it pays for itself quite quickly because you no longer need the strips. The device “reads” the blood sugar level through the skin and doesn’t “prick” the skin at all.
If it is all that the manufacturer says it is, then it will be a gift to those of us dealing with the daily pricks of blood sugar testing. I sure am hoping it will!
I guess my concern is, can you say more about it. I know you’re going to want to say what the device is in a completely separate article, but, I guess, I just find this a little, I don’t know…lacking?
I guess it just sounds very “snake oil” to me. I know that it’s not, but that’s how it comes across to me. I know you want people to bookmark and come back to your site to find out what this is, but really, I’m feeling more, “yeah, whatever, moving on.” Science and medicine both make a lot of promises. Some they deliver on and some they don’t. I guess I’m wondering how much you can depend on curiosity where there’s so much “It’s too good to be true” out there. I didn’t know if there might be something a little more concrete to offer to tip those scales.
Other than that, your page looks really nice. The visuals are compelling and the colors and pleasant to look at.
Thanks for visiting my site Kelli. Sorry it took me so long to reply. I appreciate your honest appraisal of the post and I totally get what you are saying. I am planning to post a video that will speak more to what the device does. I got excited about it and wanted to build up some suspense! 🙂
There is a lot of “too good to be true” out there and I sure didn’t mean to give the impression that this was another one of “those things.” All I can say, is keep your eye on my site because the device comes out this month and I think it really is going to be an exciting thing!
Yes the pricking of the finer and constant testing is very annoying.It’s the price we have to pay to keep tabs on our sugars, right?
I guess once you get used to it, it just becomes routine.It would be nice to have another way to test our sugars.
I thought I saw a couple of different ways to do it with an app and sticking a test strip into the phone.Have you heard about this or something close to it?
Thank you for visiting my site, Rob.
Yes, I had heard of the app you are talking about, what I am referring to is not that. It is also not the “patch” thing that some people are wearing that tests the sugar levels every 5 minutes, but still requires a prick and very careful care of the device that is placed on the arm for 5 days-14 days. I will be including a video in my next post, so be sure to check that out!
What are you talking about? is it a pain-free device that can measure blood sugar many times a day? no more pricking fingers, wonderful!!!!! My aunt is suffering diabetes, and her fingers are damaged for many pricking, it is a very very big notice. I will tell her and will follow your site to be updated about this device.Thank you for let us know about 🙂
Hi Maria, thanks for visiting my site!
What I am talking about is a pain-free device that can measure blood sugar many times a day. I didn’t want to say a lot about it until I know all the details, but I will be sharing a video about the device in my next post, so be sure to check that out! I should have mine sometime this month and then I can give a much better review than just this “teaser.”
Thanks again and hope to see you back soon!
Hi Karin, I appreciate the opportunity to visit your page. Interestingly we both use the same theme. Diabetes seems to be unfortunately too common. I had a friend who suffered from diabetes and was able to notice the change in him as his sugar levels were compromised.
You are covering a very significant and important health issue, in a way where it is easy to navigate your information. When I went to portion control, and recipes I really did not see anything significant. But by exploring your site more I noticed you had provided a link covering these topics.
You have a great site that is very informative and well put together. Thank you.
If you do have a chance I would appreciate it if you could visit my site and perhaps give me some insights in how I may be able to improve it.
Once again thank you Karin,
Thanks for visiting my site, Michael. I appreciate your comments. I consider my site a “work in progress” constantly evolving. Some of the pages are not finished and I should move them offline so they don’t confuse anyone. I am so glad you like the site. I hope you will visit again! Let me know the name of your site and I will certainly visit it! 🙂
