Sometimes no matter how what I do it seems there often is a little drop of insulin on the needle. It happened this morning when I gave my daughter her single unit of insulin for a 30 carb breakfast. A few hours later the school nurse called and said her glucose was 260. I can't imagine a small drop missing from the dose made her this high.
What do you do to make sure all the unit goes in? I have been counting to 10 and it usually works. Today I held the button down too long and the injection hurt her a little so I removed sooner than usual.
I wonder if her honeymoon is ending. It has been almost 4 months since dx. She was a little higher than usual when she awoke this morning too. Her morning reading has jumped around between 90 and 140 the past week. Usually she is around 100-110.
