Not our fault

For the past couple weeks we've been battling high blood sugars at the Maxwell house. We've rejiggered the basal insulin amounts (Lantus), adjusted insulin to carb ratios, changed the time of injection for boluses. Nothing seemed to make a dent, and much self-blame was heaped on ourselves.

Then Marinda had a light bulb moment this morning.

Maybe, just maybe, the problem was the insulin we were using - not HOW we were using it. After all, we had switched suppliers to a new mail order prescription company.

Sometimes it's important to remember that the insulin is bad - not the decisions you make.
