Day 5 - Meter Evolution
These are all of the meters I have owned since my diagnosis in 1996. The one on the far left was a "gift" from the hospital. They gave us 2, one for school and one for home. Don't get me wrong I love gadgets just as much as the next 16 year old kid, but if I could I would not have these. I monitor my blood glucose up to 15 times a day. It used to hurt, now it's just normal. I hope there will be a day when no child has to do this. A time when it will not become normal for anyone. A day when finger pricks are a thing of the past.
There is no cure for Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.
