prickless blood sugar tester
type111 posted:
I saw a commercial with Alan Thicke about a prickless blood sugar tester from ccs corp and i forgot to get the number. Does anyone know it or heard of this particular company?
nwsmom responded:
Does it say "no more pricking your fingers"? That just means you can use an alternate site, such as forearms.
DavidHueben responded:
I watched the commercial online. Within the first 30 seconds, he says you can test on your arms. All new meters can do the same. I know nothing about the company, CCS, that he is promoting.
