I remember the Clinitest
tablets, I THINK. I have always had a blood glucose monitor, but I do remember
these vials and I had to add a tablet to them, and they would got hot and
you wouldn't dare touch the bottom!!! I had a chart to compare it too
also. I remember TRYING to trick my Mom, but it never worked. AND my Accu-check
was HUGE! If I brought it anywhere to test my blood is was big and awkward.
I know I sound whiny, but just
like you guys from the REAL OLD school, it was hard on me too. I am sure glad
though, I NEVER had to sterilize anything. I would have had a harder time
adjusting. WOW, *Pat on the back* for that one.
UGH! I am SURE glad those
days are over!
I would guess they stopped that
in the late 80's?? (Clinitest) Right? I am only 26 years old, but it is amazing
how technology and the KNOWLEDGE that has advanced. I remember being diagnosed
in 1984 and all they said to my Mom and I was "Make sure her sugars ranges from
80-120 and that is it!! I was told how to eat and I was told how to take
insulin, NEVER anything on complications. What a shame!! Okay I am done now.
Thanks for listening.
