Many of your patients want to maintain good glycemic control, but despite their best intentions, they may not be compliant with requirements to test their blood sugar. A big reason is the pain associated with constant finger pricks. Whether they have type 1 or type 2 diabetes, young or old, these common barriers to care for regular testing can be minimized.
Many patients don’t test regularly due to the following:
By removing the obstacles that stand in the way of regular blood glucose testing, healthcare providers can minimize burnout, improve testing motivation, and have more influence over patient outcomes.
The Genteel® Lancing Device is a long awaited innovation for patient self-care. Genteel draws a drop of blood from anywhere on the body, without the pain experienced with typical lancing devices. Pain nerves are avoided by controlling the depth of lancet penetration through the use of Genteel’s patented contact tips. A vacuum then draws the necessary blood droplet for testing.
Clinical studies reveal that when patients test more often, their A1C number improves. With Genteel, you can overcome the most common barriers to regular blood glucose testing and help patients achieve a healthy A1C number. Proper diabetes self-care is essential when striving to lower a patient’s A1C number to reduce their risk of health complications, and increase quality of life.
With innovative tools and support from healthcare providers, patients can manage their diabetes with self-care; along with taking medications as instructed, eating a healthy diet, and being physically active.
The Genteel® Lancing Device can be an integral part of your management of patients with diabetes. When a healthy A1C number is maintained or reached, patient outcomes are improved, and you can more easily meet quality measures and pay-for-performance incentives.
