“If you prick us, do we not bleed?” (Merchant of Venice, Shakespeare)
Apparently, my fingertips haven’t gotten that message lately. I have pricked, poked, and all but stabbed them most of the time, only to see one itty bitty measly little speck of blood to come up. I know I’ve tested a lot lately, but I need for it to work now.
Well, I always do… but more-so now because I’m using Humalog on a trial basis, and apparently it has a much bigger effect on my blood sugars than I thought it would. So far this morning, I’ve eaten 73 grams of carb, and more than 40 have been in glucose tabs.
I know switching between Novolog and Humalog for some has no effect, or little at best, but it seems that for me, it has a big effect. Which makes me wonder if maybe everyone should trial different insulins at different times just to see if maybe one would actually work better than the other.
