Have injection every 28days ...very good so far. Have notice my blood glucose level falls - symptoms feel shaky . Not to often . I check my own sugar levels now ,just to see what is happening to my blood. Also good for your consultant to see the trend ,pattern to what is happening over the course of your treatment.

I have been getting 30mg shot every 3 weeks, I was given 6 months to live ,that was Feb. 2000, I cant believe that I am still around. The shot site is very painful for about 1 week after receiving treatment.I believe that receiving the shot is what has prolonged my life.
