That if my morning reading do not come down after increasing my metformin to 1000mg a day I may have to take a shot of insulin in the morning. I really dont do needles well. so would like to hear some realities of giving yourself a shot. I dont like the idea, and dont know if I can
It's all a calculated risk just like the rest of life.
if you are 40 years old and do not take your treatment they may be amputating your legs in maybe 15 years so do you really care if you have legs to walk on at age 55? Are you going to suffer the pain and inconvenience of giving yourself shots for 15 years just to still have usable legs at age 55? Many younger people may take the shots but if you are over 80 years old your attitude may change.
So i guess it depends on how old you are, how much crap are you willing to put up with to save your legs, eye sight, kidneys, and extend your life span. So how old are you?
As a cruel reality check try this:
just breathe in and breathe out normally, then pinch your nose and count the seconds you can hold your breath.
If you can hold your breath 20 seconds you may be worth the bother of extending your useful life.
If you can't hold your breath for 10 seconds and you want to live you better not wait too long to attempt recovery/stabilization.
