before pricking your finger for a drop of blood, it helps to wash hands with soap and water as any grease on fingers will prevent a hanging drop from forming, most testers need a hanging drop
also any honey or jam, etc on the skin can cause a false high bloodsugar reading
 
for some reason blood seems to flow more easily from the little finger

Your sugar readings are also more accurate when you wash your hands first.
