Do You Intentionally Skip Your Shots?

We ran an article this morning on Diabetes News Hound that claims as many as 1 in 5 diabetics intentionally skip taking their shots on a regular basis. And, it said up to 50% of diabetics miss shots from time to time. Check it out here: One in Five Diabetics Intentionally Skipping Shots Frequently

I thought it was an interesting topic and I'm curious if anyone here misses shots and if so, why?


Study Suggests Pills Are Better Than Insulin For Type 2s

FDA Approves Once-a-Day Shot Victoza for Type 2 Diabetes

When I was newly diagnosed about 10 years, I skipped A LOT of shots. Only thing is, it wasn’t necessarily intentionally, perhaps moreso, lazy. And since I was badly educated, I’d make up for it by giving myself a big shot in the evenings to make up for the day. But I never passed out from a low, thank goodness. I don’t think I could get away with this behavior today.

Never!!!. I dont want to end up back in DKA…I was lucky I lived through it the first time. I am thankful for my insulin, I want to live as long as possible.
