How Genteel Works
Using vacuum and depth control, you can retrieve the perfect drop for blood sugar checks. Genteel restricts the lancet from hitting pain nerves. A blood drop is then brought to the surface, with vacuum (like a straw), to use in your test meter.
"It just felt like someone tapping you"

I've been wanting to try out this lancing device from MyGenteel for so long now! I hope this is useful for those of you interested.
Reviews From Customers
Here's What Our Customers Are Saying In Australia, New Zealand & Worldwide
"I love my Genteel. I was a little skeptical at first. Because the reviews seemed too good to be true. But sure enough it arrived and it’s fantastic! I use it on my arm or my palm at the base of my thumb and no pain. It comes with gorgeous stickers; which is great for kids or big kids at heart like me (mine is covered in unicorns, stars and dinosaurs!)"
"I’ve been using the Genteel for around 3yrs, best decision I ever made as my fingers were really suffering after many years of finger pricks (28yrs at the time). I use in my forearm and find I don’t avoid testing as I know it’s not going to cause me pain like it used to in my fingers!😍"
"I'm a pretty bad diabetic, all my friends know it! I was not testing because of the discomfort from the finger pricks. As a result my levels got out of control. I now use Genteel and look forward to my daily test with No Pain or Any Discomfort! I also now test on my palm. I even talked a friend into buying one. If you're sitting on the fence, it's worth every dollar!"
My little dog was diagnosed with diabetes a month ago. I have struggled with checking his levels twice a day, that was until I received this amazing device. The Genteel allows me to check his levels multiple times a day with out causing my little dog pain or stress. I have even tried it on myself and was amazed that it was completely pain free. I highly recommend this product!
Love my Genteel! After having diabetes for 36 years my fingers have had enough of painful Fingerpricks! The genteel lancing device is virtually painless and it's so great to use other sites to give my fingers a rest!
OMGGGGGGG!!! I just got our Genteel in the mail today and decided to play with it before kiddo comes home from school. Guys, this thing is SERIOUSLY awesome. I pricked myself in my palm first. No pain. Okay, arm. Didn't feel it. Inner wrist. Ya know, that tickle spot that is super duper sensitive?? Not even a tiny bit uncomfortable!!!! This is HUGE.
Give fingers a break
Eliminate severe puncture marks, swelling, bruising and sensitivity using vacuum and depth control and start using the palm (which matches fingertip readings!)
No More Squeezing
With it’s vacuum, Genteel brings blood to the surface and forms the perfect drop anywhere on the body. Squeezing is a thing of the past.
Reduce lancet impact
Typical lancing devices slice into the skin instead of using a precise vertical direction. By using a precise motion and controlling how far the lancet goes into your skin, you can start testing with less pain.
Which Lancets Can I Use?
Genteel works with most square-shaft lancets (like One Touch UltraSoft, Bayer Microlet and others). We recommend our Genteel Butterfly Touch Lancets and a small sample pack is included with every Genteel. Order one or more boxes of Butterfly Touch lancets together with your Genteel device and they will be included at no extra shipping cost.

“Super grateful to Genteel for saving my finger tips one painless palm (and arm) prick at a time during my mini Dexcom vacation this week!"
“I’ve permanently changed my lancing device to the Genteel! I love it and it is pretty painless compared to my old poker. Though I don’t check my blood sugar manually as often anymore (thanks to the Dexcom G6), I always carry a blood glucometer, test strips, and a lancing device with me everywhere I go."
