By | 18 August, 2011

In this video, I shamlessly plug my wife’s website and check my blood glucose, with embarrasing but suprisingly entertaining results!

    A set (which I’d changed that morning) didn’t go in properly so I was chasing high BGs all day, until it finally clicked and I did a set change – problem solved!

    Superb 🙂 Does your wife have a website selling bags and cases? Really? I hadn’t heard. Tell me more.

    Is this the perfect time to reignite the MDI v Pump debate?

    Few things are more embarrassing about getting a crappy result at a) the hospital b) with a bunch of other diabetics. Shoot Up nights out usually feature people trying to test their BG under the table for just this reason!

    I do think that, with a little more sleight of hand, you could have got several version of stripykat.com produce in, thus giving a more rounded view of the goodies on offer. C+, must try harder 😉

    Hi @t1steve – welcome to Shoot Up! Tragically the piano’s strings have been slackened off as it needs restoring, so no show tunes just yet 🙁

    as shameless as the plugs are for Katies great site, http://www.stripykat.com, as someone that puts up with conversation about diabeties, which is as stimulating as someone who has just got a new Iphone..I feel the need to shamelessly plug my book Bob the Bamboo Monkey. Its available to buy now on Amazon.co.uk! cheers!

    I think you need to get the flipcharts out next time you have a family meet up @Tim, your older brother needs further education in diabetes to stop him from spelling it diabeties 😉
