After initially being diagnosed with Type 2, I was then diagnosed type 1 two years ago. I was told it was a very unusual slow burning type which meant that I have been able to avoid all medication until now by following a strict low carb diet. This changed very suddenly a few weeks ago when almost overnight my blood sugar readings spiked and have never come back down. Anyway, long story cut short... I was put on ABASAGLAR insulin today and took my first ever shot tonight. Just 2 units a day for now because I’m slim and they think I may be highly Insulin sensitive. I did what I was told and injected at a 90° angle (I think) and held the needle in place for 10 seconds. When I removed the needle there was a big blob of blood and I have to say it really hurt! It bruised instantly and I have a nasty red puncture site! I also noticed that when I did the airshot I could tell really see anything coming out. Can some of you experts, please help me with some tips!? Am feeling a bit s*** Thanks a lot.
