I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and today went to learn how to administer insulin. Humulin N 8 units at night.
During the appointment, I kept getting air bubbles in the syringe. Trying to tap it up/out was a struggle, and each time I ended up with a bent syringe.
Question: Any tips to avoid bubbles while drawing the insulin into the synringe? And tips for getting it out without bending the needle?
Also - I was told to take this at night, but didn't clarify "when". Should it be taken right before bedtime, after dinner, a while before bedtime? I want to be sure I am taking it at the proper time.
I've learned a lot from this forum already - thank you everyone!
