I used the same lancet to check my glucose level as my mother. She is diabetic and has high cholesterol. Does it mean that I will also get diabetes and high cholesterol?
Hello, I am 33 years old male. I am worried as I used the same lancet as my mother to check my glucose level. She is diabetic and has high cholesterol. Does it mean that I will also get diabetes and high cholesterol? Will I also get diabetes? Please let me know in the comments I am worried. Thank You.
@manav-0 Hello, It is not recommended to share lancets. However, you won’t get diseases like high cholesterol and diabetes as they are not contagious. You can definitely get STDs or other infectious diseases from sharing lancets if your mother/father has one. It is better to get tested and if you experience unusual symptoms then please consult your doctor. Thanks.
