here's what I learned

Thirty seconds of research on Google can be very educational. So here's what I learned: there are several types of insulin shots. Their effect lasts anywhere from thirty minutes to four hours. I've been chronicling how my blood sugar has been going down steadily since I stopped eating rice over several days. It's been two days since I had the shot, and my blood sugar is fluctuating between 140 and 160 points below where it was when I got here. Would you conclude that this is all thanks to the shot? Yeah, me, neither.

For the record, my blood sugar is around 130. That's not horrible for a diabetic, but for non-diabetics, normal is around 70. So I obviously still have plenty of work to do.
