I posted this to the FB group but I’ll post it here too.

I’m interested in getting a glucose monitor. I’d like to find out if it’s possible to use it on my forearms instead of on my hands. I’m hemophobic and sticking my fingers is more than I can stand.
Also, any suggestions on an accurate make/model that can sync up with software?
I was looking at the Fora 6 connect and the Contour Next One, but don’t have sufficient knowledge about glucose meters to determine if they’re worth getting.

Finally, I’d like to make sure it’s something I can just buy and use without necessarily having to deal with a doctor to get it (e.g. continuous glucose monitor).

Thanks for any help in sorting this out.

Dario is another good choice that communicates with your smartphone to track values.

So I decided to go for the Dario and it arrived yesterday.

I’d like to make a baseline.
What’s the best time to use it for this initial purpose? First thing in the morning before eating breakfast?
