    Having switched Lantus to the morning and the subsequent reading of 8.5 yesterday, 6.0 and no hypo during the night! Delighted!

    I was a little worried that the awful smell of paint in my bedroom would have affected the reading for the worse!

    No, I tend to reuse for about 20 times. There's not doubt they do get blunt but I find this to be okay. I've not had any problems... yet.
    There are a number of threads on pros and cons.
