Genteel Lancing Device Review

If you have diabetes and have to check your blood sugar levels regularly you probably know how painful it can be. Having to prick yourself too often is no joke. If you are a mother of a child with diabetes you probably identify with the pain that you go through having to see your child refusing to be checked blood sugar levels because of pain. Having to squeeze the finger because you just cannot get enough blood but at the same time not wanting to prick again.

If you identify with the above, then the Genteel Lancing device is your solution. Regular blood sugar test is a very important aspect in diabetes management. It needs to be done.

Cons of using this kit

The Genteel lancing device is more expensive than the other standard lancing devices. However, if checking your blood sugar regularly is a necessity, Genteel is all worth purchasing. It is also very valuable if you have to use it on kids.

It is bigger than many other lancets. The size makes it harder to carry it around in small purse unlike other lancing devices.

It is more complex than your typical lancing device. The device takes a little more time to get used to how it works but once you’ve grabbed the process, you will want to stick to it forever.

The Genteel Lancing Device sounds like a blessing to those who have to test blood sugar levels.  I think the price is well worth the pain-free experience and the different colors that are available would make it appealing to children and young people!  You mention that its size would make it inconvenient to take with you but it does have that carrying case.  And am I seeing a 120 return policy?  I think it’s well worth trying!

  4. Hi, Bio!

    Nice to see your introduction about The Genteel Lancing Device.

    The Genteel Lancing Device really sounds good to those who have to test blood sugar levels.

    My parents had high blood sugar a few years ago and had to take tests frequently. At that time, there was no such convenient testing equipment.

    Now this kind of product develops very well, and the accessories are complete, so it is very considerate for users. I haven’t used it yet. I will consider this product when I need to take my blood sugar frequently in the future.

    Great article and product, thank you!


  5. Hello there! This is an informative post. I actually do not have diabetes but I do know a lot of people who do have it. It is definitely a serious condition to have but if one is able to monitor it carefully, they can live normal lives!

Going to have to recommend this to them. Thanks for compiling this.
