    I have a needle cutter to cut the needles from my needles for my insulin, it says not to cut the needles for pricking my fingers when checking my blood sugar levels.
    Can anyone tell me why, is it because the needles for taking your blood sugar levels are thicker

    Thanks for that, I thought this was the reason but wasn't sure
