Insulin; what’s to fear ?
I get a sense from some posts that one should avoid insulin at all costs. If 10 units in a painless stomach injection keeps you in a steady rate and excellent ‘time on target ‘ what is the risk? I’m in the target zone 80% of time and it’s recommended to achieve over 65%. I get a small peak after a meal and I never go above 10 mml/l., after a hearty meal . With my freestyle monitor I can see exactly how an apple affects my blood sugar or how a brisk 30 minute walk affects it. Should I expect something ominous because I am taking 10 units of insulin? My dr has some patients he started on 20-40 units daily.
