    Hi,
    My DH's 70 year old (sexually active) father is visiting with his new Diabetes/blood sugar testing machine..... my DH decided to test his blood sugar and used his father's needle prick testing machine.
    Should I be worried? I'm assuming that a sharing a needle is sharing a needle, yeah?
    If so, does anyone know how long std tests take to get back? We're trying to conceive baby #3!!!! GRRRRR!!!!!!!!!

The Psychology Of Data Sharing

When Benny Simms comes home from school these days, his mom no longer greets him by asking about his blood glucose level. Most days, in fact, the 11-year-old Davidson, North Carolina, middle schooler doesnt mention his type 1 diabetes to her at all, and she doesnt need to ask: She already knows. Stacey Simms has no mom superpowers. The Simms family uses the Share feature on Bennys Dexcom G4 continuous glucose monitor (CGM), which allows his mom to watch his blood glucose readings in real time, from afar, using the Dexcom Follow app. The family is one of thousands participating in diabetes data sharing, a relatively new development in device technology. The Dexcom Share and other independent apps that hack CGM data help people with diabetes see their glucose readings constantly, displayed on phones, smart watches, and more. With the Dexcom Share, the CGM transmitter on Bennys body sends data to the G4 receiver he carries with him, which in turn sends the information to his phone via the Dexcom Share app. The app sends that information to the cloud, an online storage system, either over Wi-Fi or cellular service. The Dexcom Follow app on his moms phone pulls that data from the cloud Continue reading >>

Question - How Dangerous Is Sharing Lancet Devices? Contamination?

This site uses cookies. By continuing to use this site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies. Learn More. Question - How dangerous is sharing Lancet devices? Contamination? My 7th grade daughter used another child's lancet device and meter at school. She had forgotten her's at home. She has gotten into a lot of trouble for doing this both with us and the school. How concerned should I be that she has been cross contaminated with another child's blood? It was a drum-type lancet device and she is insisting she turned it and I know the family. Also, how much trouble should she be in with the school? So far they have suspended her for a day until we have a meeting on Tuesday. Should I expect a more severe punishment? Personally, if it were my child I wouldn't sweat it if I knew the other child or their parents. I personally think that the likelihood of infection is near zero especially if the drum was turned and if neither child has any infectious disease then the chance is zero. I would, however, discuss with him and take the opportunity to educate but I don't think it's a big deal. That's just my $0.02. I'd be on the school about that one. But then, I'm not a big fan of suspension Continue reading >>

    Hi,
    I've just joined the online community, although I've "lurked" for about a year. I'm wondering how many times one can use the same needle on the glucose monitor before it needs to be changed. I'm sure this question has been addressed here, but a search didn't result in an answer. One book I read said that the needle can be used for a few weeks or, in my case, maybe longer. My doctor told me to test while fasting in the morning twice a week. So I'm thinking I can easily use the same needle for a month. Or longer?
    Thank you!

    I haven't heard of someone getting an infection from a dirty needle/lancet, but I guess it can happen. I irregulary test and use the same lancett, I can't remember the last time I changed..it doesn't hurt yet ..that seems to be my clue to change. others change it after every use. as recommended.
    this helped me getting my bloods back to normal

    Have you seen this?
    "I would cut the Sugars including fruit/juice. Starches, including breads, pasta, rice, potato etc. Use a home blood test meter, to see what will work.

    Hi Hope Springs,
    I change to a new lancet every time I test. For me, they're the cheapest part of living with diabetes. I would think BG readings wouldn't be accurate if the same lancet was used repeatedly.
    Also, checking just twice a week doesn't seem like enough - but that's my opinion. I check at least twice a day.

But what about the reusable devices that these disposable components are pa ...
