I’ve noticed that I default to testing my blood glucose on my left pinky. Most of the time I load up a test strip, set my Delica to ‘attack mode’ and prepare my left pinky for pain before realizing I have 9 other options at my disposal. Most of the time I move my lancing device to a different finger for the actual test, but most of the time I touch my pinky before moving to the eventual victim of my next test. It’s a weird habit whose origins I cannot pinpoint.
This brings me to the participation portion of today’s blog post.
Anyone else out there? What’s your Default Digit for testing your blood glucose?
