I test my blood glucose about 5 – 7 times daily. Each one of those tests requires a lancet and a test strip. I take insulin 5 times a day ( 3 Novolog, 2 Levemir ). Each one of those shots requires a needle. That’s 35-49 test strips and 35 needles in one week. Or looking at it another way; I punch over 70 holes in my body each week.

Diabetes 365 Day 8

Hey. I’m famous. 🙂 Not really. Got a note from the Wall Street Journal that they used my photo in a story on diabetes. The photo was one of many that I submitted to the Diebetes 365 project on Flickr.
