Okay, so I have GD and it is diet controlled. My numbers haven't been far off normal, at the most a point or two elevated after I have a carb-rich meal (pasta is my weakness :S )
Anyhow, I just took my blood out of my right index finger and didn't get much blood out, enough to cover the strip but I had to squeeze the hell outta my finger too. The number was 137. That seemed awfully high so I checked another finger, one on my left hand which I usually check my blood on. The thing bled like normal and the number was 119.
My question is has anyone else noticed a difference between your numbers when checking with one hand versus the other? I am right handed and it does seem like the needle has to go down deeper in my right hand too to get blood.
