Now let me preface this by saying that I wouldn’t ever actually do this. Now, that having been said, I was at Schnucks today getting some food for lunch, and there was a sign up that said there was a mobile diabetes testing van coming by tomorrow to check blood sugar to determine if you have the symptoms. And that gave me the following great idea.
Step 1: Put insulin pump on suspend. (Causes it to temporarily stop giving insulin.)
Step 2: Drink a couple of cans of regular soda.
Step 3: Go to blood sugar testing van.
Step 4: Watch in shock as nurses see my ridiculously high blood sugar.
Now like I said, I wouldn’t do that. It could theoretically be dangerous, although one time most likely wouldn’t do any damage. But it would also make me feel like crap. And it just isn’t a terribly bright thing to do.
Still, it would be kinda funny to see the looks on their faces, eh? Eh?
