I had to test (10 yrs ago) with finger sticks 4-5 x/day my blood sugar
and eat an extremely modified diet, go in
like every 2 weeks to the diabetes
clinic for education and check-ups. The fingersticks didn't hurt at all if you did the side of your fingers hwere there are no nerves (not fingertips, owwww). They don't hurt after either. I guess I am wondering if the medical protocol has changed and now everyone does insulin?
Where you given a choice at all? (fingersticks/diet vs insulin)?
