HELPPPP PLZZ --->>>: Diabetic Test Strip and HCV risks ?
Aug 1, 2010

Recently I Used Glucose meter which has been previously used by my brother . I carelessly did not change the strip. He has HEP C .

But i used fresh needle and But i did use it after some hours after my brother used it.

I did not find any visible blood on strip before using . Should i be concerned ? DO you recommend testing ? I am very worried . Help me .


We don't share razors and brushes .

Response from Dr. McGovern

The most important issue is that you changed the needle. Thus I would not recommend any HCV testing.

Fist fight
