The main medicine people with Type 1 diabetes take on a daily basis is insulin, but did you know that other non-diabetes-related medications can affect your blood sugar, too? This side effect can create havoc on your glucose management if you don’t adjust your insulin levels to accommodate it.
Opinion. I am writing to share my experience using over-the-counter (OTC) insulin from Walmart. I am 41 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 25 years old. I’ve used OTC insulin for the last eight years, and in that time I have found it to be invaluable for my self-care.
