1. A body fluid sampling device, comprising:

  • a housing;

    a penetrating member positioned in the housing coupled to an electronic controllable penetrating member driver;

    a position sensor;

    a processor in communication with the position sensor, the processor processing information regarding skin site position for lancing and success rate of a lancing event relative to different skin sites, in response to selection of a profile the processor configured to modulate power from a power supply to the electronic controllable penetrating member driver, an electrical conductor electrically coupling the processor to the position sensor;

    a database that stores information and statistics for each user and each profile of a particular user, the processor configured to store results of a lancing event and construct the database; and

    a display coupled to the processor and the database that displays information to teach a user skin sites to avoid and use for successful lancing to obtain a good sample of fluid sample during a lancing event.
