Re: [IPk] one injection per day


We have sorted that out with the clinic now.  Well, at least I hope so.  It
was not until I talked to others that I realised that it was different at our
clinic.  I mean what is the point of discussing and A1c of 6 months ago when
you can be talking of  the one that has just gone.  When we got the D nurse to
come and give us a talk we asked about it.  She said that apparently it was
done differently before and somehow they stopped doing this.  So now we are to
pick up a labelled bottle, do the test at home and bring it in a week before
the clinic.  I just can't think why they didn't do this before.  When we were
leaving to had to remind the other nurse to give us one of these tubes and she
was a bit snappy about it.  I would have thought it saved time at the clinic
if everybody has done their own test before hand.
