Liladieni, I am sorry to hear about your recent ER visit. It sounds like you are very good at measuring and understanding extreeme condtions. I have started insulin a few years ago after years of medication, diet and exercise. My doctor was very forthright that my pancreas is just not able to produce enough of my own insulin. I feel much more incontrol of my blood sugar results with the insulin and medications. The "Pens" make injections very portable, quick, accurate, and easy. The needles are so fine that they do not bother me at all. Best of luck, keep pushing for your own health and stay connected to your diabetic coordnator.View Thread
