I have diabetes marginal @ 160, i had gone to my brothers house (he too has dia.) and we were discussing it on 18-02-2014 . Soon he brought his accu check and checked his glucose. Without recognizing i also pricked with the same lancet within @ 3/4 minutes gap and checked the same. After realizing the next morning i asked him whether he had any issues regarding blood. He said he was not affected with HIV or other issues but?. Consulting with one of my Dr. friend i asked him to confirm @ jaundice. He got his blood checked & confirmed -ve. He was operated for heart surgery and got everything checked @ 2 months back. Please guide if i have to take any tests or treatment.
Response from Dr. Taylor
I do not fully understand the details but if you are concerned getting tested for hepatitis C cannot hurt.
