Daily Piece: Go Back to Basics of Insulin Injection

I heard any interesting story of a person with Type 2 diabetes last week who required continual increases in insulin dose yet the blood sugar values would not change.  So it was time to go back to the basics to figure out the mystery of why the insulin was not working.  As it turns out, the person injected in the insulin pen needle however they dialed back the insulin pen rather than pressing the button to deliver the insulin.  After the mystery was solved, the dose of insulin was cut by 60%.  Insulin pen injection technique matters.
