New Lancing Device

I just read about the Pelikan Technologies newfangled lancing device that is supposed to be painless, and the lanced fingers heal more quickly. My first reaction was, "I WANT THAT FOR DANIEL!" However, it's $200, and I don't know if our insurance will cover it. Or maybe they will say that they will cover it, then after we get it, refuse to pay for it. Because they have done things like that in the past. Thank you very little, Aetna. In any case, we see the endo in a couple of weeks, so I'll ask.

Anyway, check it out. It looks cool. And if fingers can heal, if they can be less scarred, that would be wonderful.

I read about this and truly believe that ALL insurance companies should approve this for ALL children. I do not have children with diabetes but I've read enough of the stories to know that this would have to make a child's life just a little bit less painful. And isn't that what we all want for our children?

Anything that will take away some of the pain of diabetes is worth it to me!!
