Ok guys so i'm pretty new to this and well struggling. fed up of people telling me its really ''manageable'' these days as if that means its Ok that your life's just changed forever. My sugar level on diagnosis was in the 40's and but day 3 of Novo and Lantus and i'm down in the lower teens. i am a rather skinny person and so struggle to ''pinch an inch'' and turning into a pin cushion already and have had to stop using my pens on my tummy as it's saw. my second appointment with my doctor since being given all the pens and stuff is Tuesday so i'm sure he'll have some answers but any hints an tips from you guys? would be much appreciated.
