Problems Solved

The Genteel® Lancing Device uses it’s Butterfly Touch Technology® to get the perfect drop of test blood with reduced pain and discomfort.

  • No sore fingers
    Fingers become pincushions when pricking multiple times a day, and leaves them sore, swollen, and sensitive.
    No sore fingers
    Give fingers a break using vacuum and depth control and prick the palm (matches finger readings)..
  • Stop squeezing
    Squeezing fingers to get enough blood increases the probability of red blood cell damage (hemolysis), and the pain of bruising (hematoma).
    Stop squeezing
    With it's vacuum, Genteel brings blood to the surface and forms the perfect drop. Squeezing is a thing of the past..
  • Fear of needles
    Agonizing over whether or not to check blood sugar levels because of a fear of needles hinders checking regularly.
    Fear of needles
    Teach the mind to reinterpret needle-phobia (trypanophobia) as you successfully get blood without the sting of the lancet pricking your skin. Fear of needles no longer needs to be a barrier for checking BG levels. .
  • Let them sleep
    Kids often get woke up from much needed sleep when parents have to prick their fingers at night.
    Let them sleep
    Without the pain of the fingerstick, kids can sleep soundly through BG checks at night..
  • Fingersticks hurt
    Typical lancing devices often touch pain nerves and multiple pricks are often required to get enough blood.
    Fingersticks hurt
    By controlling how far the lancet goes into your skin, and then using vacuum to get the perfect drop, you can start testing without pain..
  • Test more often
    Often times people skip checking their blood sugar due to the pain of finger pricks.
    Check more often
    Remove the obstacles of pain and trauma and start checking blood sugar levels as your doctor prescribes. .

I don’t feel anything and little kids wouldn’t either

This is Gretchen from TypeOneTypeHappy. I just want to show you real quick one of new favorite lancing devices - the Genteel. First of all, the best part about it is that you can customize it! I chose pink, and you can put all these cool stickers on it! They give you a whole set that you can choose from. And it just makes diabetes just a little more fun. The best thing about it is that it is a pain-free lancing device; so it doesn't hurt.

Unlike my normal lancing device where you prick from your finger. And mine are all scabbed up and they hurt. You can decide to test from any body part with this. My favorite spot is the palm of my hand and I'll show you real quick how it's done. And the blood forms a little droplet and when you have enough.... you take it and you test it!

That's it! Awesome! I'd check into the Genteel. It's one of my favorites, and when you even look at it makes you pretty happy!

If your fingers are sore, buy Genteel

My name is Ellie and I'm the diabetic sister. I have to test my blood sugar 11 or more times a day. I only have 20 spots to test. So you bet my fingers get sore sometimes.

They get so sore that I can barely feel anything. You know you have a sore finger when you have tiny brown dots and they're supposed to be white.

So you're probably saying: "Oh no! What can I do?! Is there a way to fix it?!"

Well you're in luck!

There is a device that pricks your fingers, it is called Genteel. It's so great that I found how to do it all by myself. So, diabetics... If your fingers are sore, buy Genteel; and I'll show you how it works. You open the case... You take off the cap... They have stickers to decorate it. So you just take this little purple thing off.

Then you want to make sure that you get a new one because you don't want to put bacteria, the bad kind into your fingers. You want to make sure that you have a clean finger or palm because you don't want to get bad bacteria. So I'm just putting this strip in. And they let you decorate your Genteel, I chose to do it; I wrote my full name. So I'm going to show you how it works. You clean the spot where you want it. I want it on my little palm. You push this in... You hold it... And you want to do it with one of these on.

The blue one is a 1, that's what I do it on. So you hold it for 2-5 seconds. So I did that. I applied the blood and... 3... 2... 1...

Ooh, I'm high.

So that's how Genteel works. Thank you for watching! Bye!

He wasn’t testing… Now he tests all the time!

So, I got my boyfriend a Genteel prob over a year ago and it's been such a game changer! He wasn't testing like he should be because it made his fingers sore and he works with his hands for a living. Now he tests all the time! And I can test him at night while he's sleeping if he was running a little low before bed. Not to be dramatic, but it's changed both of our lives!

It’s good stuff!

Tries Genteel for the first time!

If you don’t like the pain, then get this

Hello, my name is Ethan and today I want to show you this cool little device called the Genteel lancing device. It's different than other lancing devices actually, uh you know because you always have to use your fingers. It doesn't feel too good. I play guitar, so it really really hurts when I play guitar. So I'll hit the little holes it doesn't feel too good. I recently just bought this and it's supposed to be painless. I just want to show you guys kinda how to work it to be honest it's painless. But you don't have to use it on your fingers. You can use it on your arm. You can use it on your your knee actually which I'll show you. I haven't tried it on other areas yet. What you do is click this in, of course I have the lancet in there already. And also, you don't have to squeeze the area because it uses a vacuum, which on the button there's a hole. You hold it down and it makes the blood come up which, you know, makes it painless. I'm using the blue tip- the default tip - it's the softest tip. So I'm going to put it right on my leg, right alittle before my knee. Press it, and hold it there. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. There's the blood. Gotta get my meter going... Yep, enough blood and everything. It's really cool. It's like very unexpected. But yeah, it's $120 and I definitely feel like it's worth it. So if you don't like the pain, then get this because it definitely works.
