  1. My ex-husband uses the same alcohol wipe several times for blood sugar checks and injections, while I use a clean one each time. What do you recommend? (24 Dec 2010)
  2. I have trouble controlling my blood sugar. Anxiety about my injections can make my blood sugar go up. I am also afraid to change the injection sites. What do you recommend? (23 Dec 2010)
  3. I am embarrassed by the small bumps that have appeared in the places where I inject insulin. How can I get rid of them? (26 May 2010)
  4. Since his mom is not rotating injection sites, my nephew has scar tissue at the often used sites. Is this common? How many sites should they be using? (26 May 2010)
  5. Have you heard of Pelikan Technologies? Are they planning a new device now that they have taken the old one off the market? (29 Mar 2010)
  6. Are there any tips on how to inject a newly diagnosed young child who panics are the thought of his injections? Are there ways to help ease his fear of injections? (19 Mar 2010)
  7. At diagnosis, in the U.S., we were told we could use our young daughter's toes for blood glucose checks. Doctors in Israel disagree. Is this safe to do? At what age should we stop? (20 Feb 2010)
