    The greatest risk of using glucose monitor kits is infection. Always follow the cleaning and maintenance instructions enclosed with your monitor to reduce your risk of infection. You should always use a new lancet when testing your blood sugar level. Reusing lancets can give you an infection. Also, never share lancets with another person because diseases can be transmitted this way.
