JUNE 14, 2011 [Bolus, Insulin Reaction] Log, Study, Tweak, Repeat.
Insulin. a post I wrote about why Insulin is not a CURE. Insulin is not a CURE.The balance required in dosing insulin is tenuous. If you give too much it can induce a low blood sugar reaction called " hypoglycemia " or an "insulin reaction".

FEBRUARY 14, 2015 [Bolus, Insulin Reaction] 7 decades with Type 1 Diabetes
I often had severe insulin reactions in the middle of the night, but I don’t remember that my diabetes made any difference to my quality of life. I told my husband, Gene, that I wanted an insulin pump, but the cost was about $6,000, and it was not covered by our insurance plan.

NOVEMBER 12, 2009 [Bolus, Insulin Reaction] Two Fifths
I did bolus for both and think I did pretty well although I was still pretty high at lunch. I think I have delayed insulin reaction (wish insulin worked as quickly as carbs…). For lunch I had a turkey sandwich and bolused just for that, didn’t do a correction. Day Twelve – almost halfway! 12/30 = 2/5 This 30 day thing may do me in but I’ll keep plugging away. I did (finally) join NaBloPoMo, just haven’t gotten the graphic up yet.

No suppertime bolus hanging 'round, my basal ran 0.3 hardly major insulin reaction material) One minute, I was ironing, the next, I was doing a carpet burn 5 feet away. When I came too,my heart was beating funkily + I was shaking like I was having El Majoro insulin reaction. Wednesday night, 8 pm. Party at my house. All the cool kids were there. My parents. My oldest brother. The rescue squad. The fire department.

JULY 27, 2010 [Bolus, Insulin Reaction] Pregnancy and Chronic Illness: Discuss.
How Gonal-F injections differ from insulin shots. Blood sugars and food intake and insulin, oh my. I’ll admit that last week, I ate a bunch, and covered for it with ginormous amounts of insulin. I also treat at least one, if not more, insulin reactions a day, with some amount of juice. Kind Endo was nonplussed, telling me that I need to just let the insulin do its job and not to worry about short bursts of high blood sugars.

DORKABETIC [Bolus, Insulin Reaction] A Lunch Lost
| SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 2008
It's no wonder people think that when you get an insulin
pump, you're set for life. Then the mom asks the daughter if she remembered to bolus
. Plus, isn't this pump supposed to monitor her blood sugar, therefore giving her the correct amount of insulin
automatically? It's her insulin
pump for type 1 diabetes," Mom answers. And he's not afraid to take her insulin
as a means to get what he wants! I want to see if we see the Brat's insulin
pump. MORE >>
DLIFE [Bolus, Insulin Reaction] Giant Frustration and How to Slay It
| SUNDAY, JANUARY 2, 2011
I got up, tested at 106 mg/dl, and had a breakfast of fruit, peanut butter and a half cup of milk with no bolus
. As I fought to get to a normal level on the first morning of the new year, my frustration and self judgment, supersized by the time-extended insulin reaction
, screamed in my hearts ear all the other things I could have done, all the things I could have done better. Though I have type 2 D and am not on insulin
, your piece touched me in a way that made me cry. MORE >>
