During my last Doctor’s visit, he made the comment that I’m testing my blood sugar levels quite frequently. The Glooko app also confirmed my constant finger pricking, as I’m averaging a little over 9 pricks a day. Ouch! Good thing I have good health insurance, as buying these test strips without a prescription are over $1 a strip!
Yes, these frequent finger pricks hurt (sometimes more than others) and make the tips of my fingers rather sore; however, continually knowing my sugar levels means more insight into my body and its glucose levels. Maybe it’s because I’m new at being a Type 1 and fear the unknown? Maybe it’s my Type A nature? Either way, it gives me a sense of control over this whole “diabetes” situation…
Looking forward to a continuous glucose monitor. : )
