A short video blog from the consumerjusticegroup.com explaining the FDA drug recall process.

Cdc And Fda: Don’t Share!

It would seem to go without saying that devices used to puncture the skin — such as lancets and insulin pen needles — should never be shared by more than one person. In fact, these components are not officially considered reusable even by the same person, although as we noted in a previous post here at Diabetes Flashpoints, many people with diabetes reuse them anyway. But what about the reusable devices that these disposable components are paired with: lancing (fingerstick) devices and insulin pens? Can more than one person safely share them? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently addressed this question as it relates to devices in health-care settings. In coordinated statements, the agencies announced their position that lancing devices should never be used to obtain a blood sample from more than one person. The FDA noted that there has been a constant increase in reported instances of bloodborne infections being transmitted in health-care settings over the last 10–15 years, particularly involving the hepatitis B virus. The agency blames, in part, unclear labeling of multiple-use lancing devices for this trend 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

    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.

How To Safely Use Glucose Meters And Test Strips For Diabetes

Subscribe: FDA Consumer Health Information Using a glucose meter to check and monitor blood sugar is a daily part of life for millions of Americans with diabetes. Glucose meters and test strips are medical devices regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. And the FDA wants to make sure you use these devices safely. Read on for advice. Beware of Buying Previously Owned Test Strips The FDA is aware that some sellers are marketing pre-owned or secondhand test strips to consumers. These are unused test strips previously owned by someone else. These pre-owned strips may be sold at lower prices when compared to new strips. For instance, you may see flyers advertising cheap test strips in your neighborhood, or you may see sellers marketing cheap test strips online. It is technically legal for people to resell their test strips. But the FDA does not recommend that you buy pre-owned test strips or that you resell your unused strips. That’s because pre-owned strips can give incorrect results—and may not be safe to use with your device. Here’s why: Test strips should be properly stored to give accurate results. If you buy pre-owned strips, it is hard to know whether the strips Continue reading >>

This study was performed to test the possibility that measurement of serum glycated albumin (GA) better assesses the need for OGTT.
