Got your attention!
No, I don't really mean the brit interpretation of "bloody" -- I'm talking the real stuff.
From Riva Greenberg's article that Richard has kindly shared with us:
There's also time spent wiping residual blood from blood sugar checks off my kitchen cabinets, coffee table and keyboard.This is puzzling me.
Recently, this has come up a few times here too. People referring to blood squirting all over the place, like a puncture to the aorta. Now I'm not arguing this doesn't happen -- just that I'm profoundly ignorant to it, and can't understand it. I'm eager to learn.
I've been diabetic, and testing my blood, for 15 years. I've always tested on my fingers. Nothing more, ever, than "ooze". Most of the time not even that -- gotta squeeze and force the blood out.
So I'm not getting this business of a near catastrophe of high-pressure blood spray all over the place from testing. What gives?
