If you don't feel good… or if your sugars won't drop no matter how much insulin you shoot — TRY A DIFFERENT INSULIN PEN!!!!!!!

You can shoot and shoot and shoot, but if the pen has a defect, you're going to fall into DKA.

Trust me, is sucks worse than anything I can think of… even childbirth.

also when you are having high bs drink LOTS ( and i do mean LOTS) of water , yes you may be going to bathroom but also you are not getting drhydrates which can also result in high blood sugars and you pee the sugar out faster been there done that
