Cassandra--
I've heard about the IR device; not on the market yet, don't think.

Keep in mind you don't have to use your fingertips. I use a little device called the Vaculance....simple to use, twenty-bucks....which can take from other areas. (When I can, like at home, I just use my stomach; hell, there's certainly enough area to choose from......). My meter, the Glucometer Elite (now called something else? Anyway, fairly common) by Bayer; Bayer also makes the Vaculance, I think ;but anyway, FDA HAS approved the use of both of them together for non-fingertip sticking. My experience with them has been good...unlike with a couple other non-fingertip setups I tried, where I couldn't trust the readings.

You don't say what your HbA1c reading (that 90-day average) is; it's important that you know that, and know what it is every quarter.
