I was just thinking (dangerous I know, but I can’t help myself). There are a lot of us old timers here on FUD, and we all remember peeing on a stick. That would let us know what our range of Bg was maybe six or eight hours ago.
The question is, of what value was the pee test? If it’s high or low so long ago what does that have to do with what’s happening now? And if we wanted to treat it, how could we do that with the insulin we had back then?
Was it just a test to make us feel bad, or to make the pee stick makers a good living? What was the rationale? I guess I never asked the question back then, I was just compliant and did the test.
Enquiring diabetics want to know.
Ok, I’ll stop thinking now.
