[IPk] Re: Keones/QuickSets

Hi Caroline

Thanks for the advice - nice to know that I wasn't too abnormal.  I did in
fact not eat anything at all after the first high reading until 9am this
morning.  Funny thing is that after getting back to normal mid morning my BG
has steadily risen and I'm now having trouble getting below 11.  Looks like
I'm in for another sleepless night!

I didn't get an alarm with mine as it had actually bent out of my skin - I
suppose it depended on what position I was in as to whether I actually got
any insulin or not, but it certainly hurt and left a nasty mark when I
pulled it out.
