Ok, I admit it. I'm a diabetic noob. Am I also in denial that I have yet to resign myself to sticking myself regularly for testing? Hell, I hate it when others stick me! Must I now do it myself??!!
Yes. Because, unfortunately, the reality is that if you don't stick yourself, you're going to risk death. I've been there. It's not a fun time.. I promise you. Taking care of yourself is worth it.
So it's yes. Can you advise on easiest and most painless method. Are spring loaded pens the best? I also hear that some site are less painful than others to stick. Any insight?
Is this for insulin or blood sugar testing? For bg testing the least painful lancing device I've used is the one touch delica. Super fine needle and the settings are really low. Use the side of your
fingertips, not the pad in the center!
I'm thinking blood sugar. Right now only taking Metaforin and not shooting insulin.
Thank you for your insight and guidance Chloe. I'm looking forward to this.... NOTTTT!!!
I've been dealing with this for 11 years. I've nearly gone into a coma and died. I learned the hard way... I know it sucks, but push through. It's not fun but being healthy is better than being sick!

Soon we will have tatoo kind of sticker that will measure our blood sugar via the skin
Looks very cool Dina. But perhaps by the time it comes to market I might be liking the idea of lancing... although probably not.
It's not just a sticker it has a needle sensor in it. If there is just a sticker one, the margin of error is going to be pretty large

Does anyone have any ideas on getting supplies like insulin and strips without insurance? I have been spending so much money!! Help!
Has anyone else noticed that your blood sugar goes up while you are sleeping. I will often go to sleep with my blood sugar in the 80s and wake up in the high 100s to low 200s
Traveling to Chicago (staying at ohare. My backpack with insulin infusion site and syringe to fill pump got run over and crushed as I got out of a Cab. Can anyone help?
I've been wearing my Dexcom for about three months now just wondering if any other adults have had luck placing in a spot other than the abdomen?
Anyone have suggestions for where to place a Dexcom cgm sensor? I would normally use my abdomen, but because of pump sites, it's pretty beat up there. Has anyone tried the back of the arm? The idea freaks me out but I may try it.
Diabetes community: has anyone switched from Humalog to Novolog and noticed any difference/bad side effects? About to switch. thx #diabetes
Is anyone looking for insulin?
Hey guys! How often do you go to the pharmacy or receive a mail order with supplies? Thank you!
What can family members do that is most helpful when dealing with diabetes?
I just started using Afrezza (inhaled insulin). Still not sure how well it is working. Has anyone else been using it? Good or bad experiences?
