Are u kidding me? The finger stick is so much worse then injecting myself...I was surprised. The Solostar Pen is a miracle...I hope that all Insulin can be used in this pen... Get rid of the syringes alltogether... I did ask about
the Lisinopril HCTZ and you were right. But he thinks it is so small that I should be able to keep taking it. I have been trying very hard to change my eating. At first I was all Gung Ho, but then....well, I have so much stress with my son being Bipolar that I seem to be eating more for comfort. I will try to be better....
My Dr. just increased my Lantus from 10 units to 15 for a few days, then up to 20.... I don't think that's high, but I don't want to be on it forever....I will keep posted.
I hate Boats!!!!
