    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.

    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.
