I was reading Jessie's post about skipping testing and insulin doses. It got me to wondering about this subject. So here goes, let do a poll of sorts. I must admit to having been there, done that and go into (T)rouble even though I am considered a T-2........Actually I hate/skip tesing once in a while, say skip 1 test one day another test another day. I am supposed to test at least 4 times a day and adjust my insulin based on meal carbs and pre-meal reading, but some times I just feel so confident I jsut bolus for the meal.
So here goes fellow shooters..........
1. what type are you, type-1, type-2, LADA etc?
2.-A How long since you were Dx'd? (or how long ahve you been diabetic)
2-B How long have you been on insulin?
3- how many times and how often have you skipped one or more insulin doses?
4. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without taking your insulin?
5. What problems did you encounter as a result of skipping your insulin?
6. Do you ahve a question you would lie to add to this poll/discussion, please feel free to add you own question/s.......
