      How do I cope with forgotten overnight injection

        You learn from yr mistakes as a forgotten injections results in very high bg levels the next day so you try not to forget. There are insulin pens that feature a memory function......the Echo pen does this and is available from hospital clinics and also GP prescription but making some reminders on mobile phone or a paper reminder left where it will be seen, is good. How about a reminder left on bedroom pillow?

        I cannot send a private message to you- it says it is not allowed. I am trying to respond to your offer of a finger pricker

      Hi

      I'm writing about the glucose monitoring lenses for wetechhealth and I'd love to quote you. Any chance of some responses to the following?

      Do you wear contacts?
      How do you monitor glucose levels and what's it like?
      Would you be interested in the lenses? why?

      I'd also like to name you in the article if you can give me your real name.
      My email is gareth_john_m@hotmail.com

        Hi I don't wear contacts but I do wear glasses and would be happy to change if needed. I monitor my blood glucose levels with a normal blood test machine and finger pricker-
        i will continue this in email as it wont allow me to post full answer
