Hospital Nightmare and Escape!
I ended up in the hospital with an infected foot. Last Friday, I went to get some NPH insulin because I still didn’t have good Levemir. Novo Nordisk replaced the 2nd bad box with the same lot number and that was also bad. They wouldn’t ship it Friday (More)
Oh Crap 399 – Oops!
Tuesday night I went up to bed about 10.  I have a dual-alarm clock that I set for 11 PM & 7 AM – two of the times that I take Levemir.  I woke up a little after 7 this morning without my alarm going off.  It didn’t go off at 11 either.  Someone (More)
Insulin Mix-up
Last night, I was getting ready for bed around 11. Like I always do, I test my blood sugar and then take my Levemir. If I need to take a correction, I will do that also. I tested at 115, so was happy with that. I just needed to take my Levemir so I p (More)

Levemir Funny – NOT!
I called the Levemir (aka Novo Nordisk) people yesterday morning about the bad insulin I have. I was asked what I type I was. I don’t know percentage facts, but I would guess m (More)
Did You Talk to Your Doctor?
I hate when people ask me that question! Diabetes is a self-management disease. What part of self-management do they not understand? Yesterday when I called the Levemir people again (More)
Levemir is Working!
My new box of Levemir that came directly from Novo Nordisk is working. My mother dropped it off about 4:30 on Wednesday afternoon. I took some at 5:00. My regular schedule with Levemir would have been to take it at 3:00, but I was taking the Apidra e (More)
