My teacher of the graduate class I am taking has Type 2. I've never hidden my diabetes so they all know. When I got to class this week, I was obviously not feeling well.
Blood sugar check rang in at 368. My teacher about had a meltdown wanting to know if she could get me anything. I told her I was fine, I would just take some insulin and go get some water.
I came back and sat next to a fellow student. After I bolused, she says to me, "So, if your blood sugar's high, why did you take insulin? Doesn't insulin bring your blood sugar up?"
