Welcome to the forum @Mark C

I also don’t change my lancet after every finger prick. Mine gets changed on ‘ouch day’.
My bins are taken by the Local Authority, and I don’t remember them asking about prescriptions, they just told me what day to leave it out and a new one is left in its place. Your Practice should be able to tell you what the local arrangements are.

As you have found many on here find that testing really helps them to manage their Diabetes effectively. Keep the questions coming and someone will come up with a suggestions for you, sometimes very different as what works for one doesn’t work for another person. That is the way with Diabetes.

Unlike King Henry VIII - I haven't had a bath for several years now, ever since we revamped the bathroom and removed the bath. However, after nearly 40 years bodging holes in my fingers, you'll excuse me if I prefer to use sharp lancets.
