    What type of lancet device do you use? What do you recommend?
    Thanks!

    Most people swear the multiclix is the best... My dd agrees.

    Multiclix by a long shot. Alex was stunned when we first used it: "it didn't even hurt at all!".

    My daughter prefers the Multiclix over any other lancing device. She says she would rather use a rusty nail than the lancing devices that came with her meters. :cool: So we have invested in a couple spare Multiclix to keep on hand in case one gets misplaced.

    I think the multiclix is cool but the kids don't seem to use'm.

    I also like the little ones that come with the One Touch Mini's nice and small.

    Phillip got the multiclix last week and loves it. He says it doesn't even hurt. I don't know if its the same in America but our lancets came in a box of 24 (4 drums) or 100.

    Multi Clix here too. If you call accu-chek they will most likely send you one out for free.

    Definitely Multiclix, hands down. I think the boxes are "100+2" or something silly like that, for how many actually lancets there are. But, as others have said, they come in drums, so I don't know how many that works out to off the top of my head. :)

    The only one Tim will use is the Accu-check Softclix. (he won't even use the new version of that-softclix plus).

    I just tell them that I want to try out their product, I get freebies from all the companies, and they useally send one out , no problem. If the first rep you talk with says no just call back and talk with someone else.


    I have a multiclix with every meter that I use and I have not paid for any of them.
