Should I use an electric or manual razor?
Electric razors are constantly improving - they’re quick, last longer than manual razors and provide a close finish.
However, manual razors tend to be better at offering the cleanest, closest finish as you’re able to shave wet, something you’re unable to do with many electric razors.
What’s the difference between a digital thermometer and a mercury thermometer?
Mercury thermometers are the device that many people still think of when they picture a traditional thermometer.
They’re made up of a glass tube with a line of mercury in the centre that moves up or down to show you your temperature.
Digital thermometers are a more recent invention, but they’re far more accurate and are much quicker to use.
We would always recommend using a digital thermometer over a mercury thermometer when taking someone’s temperature.
Mercury thermometers can be more likely to break, causing a risk of injury from glass splinters or exposure to mercury, which is highly poisonous.
How can I monitor my blood sugar without finger pricks?
You can monitor your blood sugar levels without the uncomfortable finger pricks by investing in a flash glucose device, like the Freestyle Libre.
However, the device doesn’t measure your levels in the same way as a regular, finger-prick monitor does.
It measures the amount of glucose in the fluid that surrounds your cells, called interstitial fluid, and there may be a delay in getting the results from this, especially after exercising or eating.
Although the readings won’t be as fast, it may be an option for you if you dislike pricking your finger each time you need a reading.
Who might need to test their blood pressure?
A blood pressure check is a routine part of many doctor's appointments, but some people may need to be tested more often due to certain risk factors.
People who have certain health conditions, particularly hypertension (high blood pressure) or heart disease, will find it beneficial to keep a blood pressure monitor at home so they can test themselves regularly.
