If your having trouble bleeding, warming your finger up in warm water before doing the blood test helps. My hands are always ice cold, so this helps a lot. And if you ever have trouble with the lancets your using my tip is to try to find new ones. Growing up there was nothing worse for me then using the lancets that you had to ‘stab’ your finger with, not fun lol!
