    I would never walk on those numbers. Anything below 100, and I won't even prefer exercising. It doesn't help in my case. My preference is -- all activity while the numbers are climbing (or expected to climb) up, ie after meals/eating.

    I changed it today. Just for a change. :D Don't remember when I changed last time. In last 6 months once or may be twice only. Since January have reduced testing also. Consumed last lot in 5 and 1/2 months.

    Wow.. I set it at 2 ..Only ring finger for consistency. At about 30-40 odd pricks (4-5 days now with ALA experiment ) I feel exactly the same way as @shashikantiyengar and know its time to change the lancet. At 2.5 it kind of gushes out. Now intuitively, I know a wrong prick (i.e a prick with very less blood, will give wrong value etc) so just redo the lancing, instead of wasting the strip. :)

    I change the Lancet when I exhaust a vial
    I used to get a good drop in the initial days
    Now pricked so much that my skin is thick
    :)

    I've no idea when I changed it last.
    Most probably more than 6 months ago.
    It's set at 4 now.
    It's a j&j OneTouch Ultra2.

    Same here, unless testing too much.
    Somehow, for no reason I find that ring finger of both hands gives the best drop with minimum pain. Worst is the index and little finger. In fact, i can never prick the little finger as it's girly type :)

    I normally change when pricks start resulting "painful" feel consecutively. As a thumb rule, changing with vial works best.

    It's because of this -- skin scarring -- that I managed to get out of OCD ( :D :D :D) of testing too much.

    I somehow end up finding reasons/ excuses for the need for data for whatever reason and still keep pricking like 7-10 times a day even with the Abbott on much to the annoyance of folks at home. Just hoping to learn from the data :) and share the numbers.

    I honestly want to..but each time something happens I keep measuring and learning something new and it seems to continue..specially with liver being so tricky in its glucose disposal mechanism :)

    As long as you are on Abbott, just lock the meter and strips :)
    Personally, I used to test like you during early days. At one state i used to test with two meters - Accuchek and One touch simple select.
    I am testing a bit more these days with "Mango" stuff.

    Otherwise, I only test 100 or 120 times a year.
    Only time when I test "outside of schedule" (and this has been based on observations during early days of rigorous testing) is when I get that "lactic acid burning" sensation (or neuropathy for us) in my thighs. 99% of the time, the levels were / are 160+ So, i just re-confirm that body signal and re-affirm early days observations.

    @shashikantiyengar the morning levels is indicative of GNG and carbs during GNG tends to temporarily elevate levels and as soon as GNG stops and the recycle of carbs for amino acids also happens levels fall. Not accurate biochemistry wise, but just my understanding of it in simpler terms. Should stabilize in the 80s-90s around 5pm :)
