What lancet gauge size is best?

It really depends on the individual. Many people have callused skin, therefore a thicker needle is required. You should experiment with different sizes to find the lancet that will provide you with an adequate blood droplet each time you test. Always make sure to use the least depth possible.

    I need a lancet with a longer needle since I have very thick skin and am a very large person. What would you recommend?
