I play guitar and thus found the test-prick for blood very annoying on my finger tips. Here's the best location I found. In the pic its actually a mm or so higher onto my thumb than I like - and works in either direction left/right of that location. I don't feel it afterwords like I do on a finger tip - so it doesn't bother playing guitar.
Here's a closeup of the needle tracks from recent tests. With this location I can fit 50 per day on the same thumb (I've not dont that many in over 3 years).
Way to go! I did a similar self-driven approach almost 4 years ago. First I used Atkins like dieting to get my bloodsugar below 150 and then kept looking up calories to loose weight via "calories awareness". I lost 75lbs (now 175lbs at 5'8"). Its been 3 years with perfect health and I have no dietary prohibitions - just responsible choices and moderation with the hagan-daz. I even do have some ice creame in the freezer - but yea its been there a month or 2 already and isn't yet 1/2 gone. I believe your approach will allow you to eliminate the drugs too - I never did take those even though the Dr freaked on me about that. I was glad I avoided them.View Thread
