Remembering to Take Meds, Insulin (and Related Hacks)

Posted on December 27, 2018

Remembering to take T2 medicines or insulin daily is a lot of dedication and effort. Some people have found it beneficial to set an alarm on their clock or phone. Others keep a journal to track days/times and blood sugar readings.

On DiabetesTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with type 2 diabetes, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Remembering to take meds is one of the top topics most discussed. Here are some question-and-answer threads about remembering to take meds or insulin:

I am T2. But I often forget to take my insulin, especially when stressed. What are some ways that help you remember?

Help with taking meds: Mostly looking at how others remember to take theirs, what do you do for a job, do you have problems with your boss having an issue?

Does anyone else bruise or bleed at their injection site? Any tips?

Here are some conversations about remembering to take meds or insulin:

"I haven't tested my self in 2 months. I have diabetes type 2. I just don't have thought in my head to test and remember. What is your opinion about that & what can I do?"

"Everyday is a work in progress. Remember to get your diabetic eye exams. So important!"

"Remember even during the temptation of food, you're stronger than you think you are and you can manage/control your diabetes. Life is so much better when we eat better, then we will feel better. "

Can you relate? Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore?
