Given the cost of diabetes supplies, many people find that reusing lancets and syringes makes sense. Over half (61%) of our respondents reuse just lancets. 13% report reusing both lancets and syringes. Only 1% report reusing syringes but not lancets. Some people (2%) reuse lancets or syringes on occasion.
