Quick trip to Shoppers Drug Mart tonight to pick up my prescription - insulin
Pharmacist "Have you taken this medication before?"
Me "Yes, for years"
Him "How are your blood sugars"
Me "Fine, thank you"
Him "Do you test at least twice per day?"
Him "Because you realize it's important to test at least twice per day for good control"
Me "Yes, I test about 10 times per day"
Him "Oh. Do you know that with insulin, a common side effect is low blood sugars"
Him "So you should always keep some sugar free candies or lifesavers with you at all times in case you get low. The symptoms are shaking, sweating, fatigue, and when that happens, you should take a couple of sugar free candies. Just make sure they're sugar free"
Me "Um, OK"
Him "You should make sure you keep your blood sugars around 130/80"
Me "My blood pressure?"
Him "Yes, your blood pressure"
Me (while angrily snatching my prescription off the counter) "Yeah, thanks"
