How to perform your home blood test
If you didn’t draw enough blood using your first lancet, please:
- Warm your hands for longer. Warm hands are essential for good blood flow.
- Make sure you give a firm push when you push in the lancet. If you don’t push down firmly, your finger won’t be pricked deeply enough and blood won’t be able to flow out.
- You can gently massage your finger in the direction towards your finger tip.
If you used all your lancets but didn't manage to get enough blood out and would like another go, please email [email protected] with “More Kit” in the subject line. We’ll get that out to you ASAP free of charge.
