our spring forward is approaching (this saturday! mark your calendar! i had no idea until i saw it on the news yesterday. time flies...). this morning when i was checking my blood sugar, i thought about the lancet change because my usual depth level wasn't drawing any blood. is the needle dull? am i THAT cold? is my skin thicker?
i used to set my depth to 3. (the depth is how far the needle shoots in your skin to draw blood.) some days, level 3 works ... some days, it doesn't. today, 4 worked.
does anyone else have to adjust their depth? do you have to use a higher number over time?
good thing my fingers are numb to the pricks.
