Make Diabetes Visible: Day 21
The day starts in the kitchen with breakfast. I have to open the silverware drawer to get utensils for eating. But before I can eat, I need to check my fasting blood sugar, take a shot of Humalog to cover the meal I’m preparing, and take a shot of Victoza. I also need to take all of my oral meds for my heart and other issues. So, having all of that stuff right there in a place where I’ll see it at the start of each day serves as a reminder and helps me start the day off right. And since I usually have a small meal before bed, I also keep my Lantus pen there as well, so I see it and remember to take it.
