Basal Testing Fun

Posted on

It’s the time again-time for me to do the fun basal testing.  For those non Type 1 Diabetics (T1D), basal testing is a T1D’s favorite thing ever.  You have to fast for hours, hoping that your blood sugar doesn’t go too high or too low while not getting any sleep (if you are doing an […]
