Thanks much for great advice. This is how I get blood with either the Solo,
Solus or Prodigy. The problem we blind people have to avoid is smearing of
the blood. And you're technique is almost foolproof.

I use Solo Meter with no problem, Greg Santulli of ADS, we see each other a
few times a year. Showed me how to take better tests. He said that after
lancing your finger, instead of trying to find the blood with the strip.
First make sure the strip is in the meter, than lance you finger, while
holding the meter in one hand hold the meter with the strip upside down
meaning, hold the meter with the strip out the bottom facing down. Sorry I
am bad at describing things.
and then touch the strip to the blood this will take some practice, but the
strip will suck in the blood that way, instead of it side ways.
Also a way of finding the blood again it will take practice, the blood will
Dah moments here. Again, trying to explain what I am doing.
It has helped a lot getting more blood as well with smaller drops then
trying to pinch my fingers harder.
If you need more of an explanation, let me know.
Since he showed me how to do it, it is much better.
I like the solo meter much better than the prodigy, but some places it isn't
on there formulary to get the strips with Medicare.
