Expensive aspirin...:)

I'm a bit nervous because I've always thought being a swift clotter, after lancing or other wounds, was an advantage.

Can you link any and all factors, known to cause CVD by their impact on one of two things:

    Endothelial damage (which triggers blood clot formation)
    Increasing blood coagulability (making clots more like to form, become bigger and/or less easy to break down)

Apparently not :(

The Clop defo makes a difference Alan.  Finger bodging - quick suck, and fine, is no longer 99.9% successful.  Nearer 90% probably and I now have to take care to make sure I'm not still bleeding since now, I do continue quite often whereas prior to it this was an extreme rarity.  I spose I could try turning the depth down a bit!  Saw the vampire on Weds though - and  that stopped quite quickly to my surprise.

Funny that, I find that now when I occasionally put the blood on the strip too fast before the strip has validated itself I can take it out and put another in and sometimes still get some blood out of the first bodged hole.  Never used to be able to do that.

Reducing the depth is definitely worth a try. Lots of advantages: less chance of pain, quicker sealing/clotting of the wound, more rapid healing.
