My fiance is a type 1. Lately his sugars have been so high i need to monitor it and draw his insulin. He has been in the hospital soooo many times for it he won't go anymore. So I am left giving him meds and watching over him. One thing I'm VERY scared of....I was told that if the syringe has any air bubbles in it, the bubble could go to his heart and kill him in seconds. Now I thought that was if it was only in the blood stream like the veins. But now I'm being told that its not true. It's if u inject an air bubble into fatty tissue like the front part of his belly(where he ALWAYS puts the needle). Does anyone know the true answer? I get so scared and cry my eyes out after because I'm afraid he could die....his doctor showed me how to do it but it's different being on my own to care for him....I could really use some help. Thanks for reading!!!!!
