I can't get enough blood out of my finger, what can I do?

  • Created

To ensure that enough blood comes out, you can use the following tips:

  • Drink enough water the previous night, and shortly before performing the test
  • Hold your arm and hand under warm water before taking the blood sample
  • Move your arm in circles
  • Massage the fingers from the palm to the fingertip.

If there is still not enough blood for the blood sample, you can take blood from another finger using the second lancet (we even supply three lancets in our larger tests).

If you have difficulties taking the blood sample or are unsure, please contact us via the contact form on our website or our live chat.
