Thank you so much! I tried what you said, for my first real injection last night, and it worked. i did get a bubble, but worked it out with the excess... and the needle didn't bend (guess I was too rough trying to tap out the air bubbles).
My ketones and sugar levels didn't change this morning, I'm hoping it takes a few days for it to take affect.
And in another string, someone mentioned to insert the syringe slowly rather than like a "dart" (which is how I was told to do it yesterday afternoon by my diabetes educator) - and it was SO MUCH BETTER doing it slowly.
Thank you again. This forum is full of useful information.
Thank you so much! I slowed it down, focused... and have done the past 4 shots with only one needle each time and no bent needles. Pulling in the insulin slowly I am sure was a key factor. Now that I'm injecting twice a day, this is great.
Thank you for your help !!
