takes blood sugar levels at a restaurant table....
Josh, you struck a chord here. I admitt that I could not sit through the 16 min video of a guy who eats frozen food called pizza.
I am however an insulin dependant diabetic and have been for probably 30 years.
I use two types of insulin, one is long acting that I take morning and night. The other is very short acting that I take before every meal and sometimes in between meals. The effects of the insulin come on rapidly for me, 10-15 min. If I go to a restaurant and don't know what I will order, I better wait till I do order before giving my insulin dose. I have been to restaurants and given my insulin in the car before I went in only to find that they are really backed up and it will be 30-45 min or so before I get served. Now I have to scramble to find sugar, cause low blood sugan is a bummer. Oh and I check my blood sugar with a meter EVERY time before injecting.
Bottom line, I almost always give my self injections at the table when I go out. I do try to conceal it under the table and some times go to the restroom but it is not uncommon.
Have no idea about the guy in the video, but there are thousands of insulin dependant diabetics who have to do what they have to do.
Hope this sheds some light!
