INTERESTING TO KNOW! (ADA)
Insulin absorbtion is affected by the amount of water in your body. If you get dehydrated because of an illness or blood glucose that stays high for a long time, the insulin you inject under your skin will be poorly absorbed. When you get rehydrated, the insulin starts to be absorbed. Your blood glucose may come down rapidly even though you haven't taken extra insulin. Therefore, poor diabetes control which leads to cycles of dehydration and rehydration can cause large variations of insulin absorbtion and "brittle diabetes."
I found this interesting, hope you do also.
JB, still here!
