Riding the blood glucose level rollercoaster

December 6, 2010 | 10:51 pm

So after proudly patting Samuel on the back yesterday for doing his own infusion site and insulin changeover, we have had the BM Day from Hell. We’re not sure if the cannula was inserted properly, was bent or if there … Continue reading
