Blood, through thick and thin

I’m getting pretty good at estimating my blood sugar levels based on how thick my blood is.  If I prick my finger and blood pools immediately in a large drop then my blood sugar is lower than it is if I have to squeeze to get the blood out.

If I prick my finger and blood sprays across the ceiling in an arterial spray then my sugar is way too low.  If I have to slice my finger open from tip to end and rub it over a tampon until I get a spot of blood from it, then my blood sugar is way too high.

    1. Nothing wrong with you – despite the disease being the same, everyone suffers and responds slightly differently.
