So my 11 year old son was just recently diagnosed. I have a basic question about finger sticks and glucose testing. in the hospital they said we should do the stick, squeeze, wipe away that first drop, squeeze to get a second drop and test that drop. Thats fine during the day when your kid is awake. At night, when I am trying to get the job done when he is asleep, I really just want to use the first drop. The squeezing is what wakes him, or he tends to pull his hand away when I start trying to squeeze. I have tested both drops several times and they seem to be about the same, so these past few nights I just grabbed the first drop and got out of Dodge while the getting was good. I just need to know.......is it really necessary to waste that first drop?
