<< Mary Jean,
 I'm sorry to disagree with you, but I highly doubt your aunt has been on MDI
 for almost 50 years. With the advent of NPH, and adding Regular to it (or
 even Protamine Zinc insulin in latae '40s) shots were given once a day -
 which I did for 33 years. Then, In '81 & '82 I took a giant step BACKWARDS
 and reluctantly took 2 a day. I said I'd rather have one a week, or one a
 month, NOT double my injections. lol  In the 50 years for me, I never was on
 MDI (Multiple Daily Injections). [Michael, do you think you should remove me
 from the 24,900 list since 50 years of single/double injections don't add up
 to that?] >>
    Jan: I am in the same boat. I started mdi in 76 or 77.That gives me365X 
30 =10,950 + 77-97 = (2 per day) 14,600 97-00 (3+ per day) 3,285=28,835? That 
can't be right The whole thing gives me a pain in the A** .  Roger C
