Boing Boing reader Ken Faeger of Whitewater, Wisconsin shares this photo in the BB Flickr pool and says, "Kaela finally made me a cupcake I can actually eat."
That’s one pricey cupcake.
Also, ask Martha Von Bulow whether that cupcake’s edible.
Oh, totally safe, it will break down in your digestive tract (hmmm, well, most of it, I wonder if you could absorb enough to cause problems first, but it’s a protein so kinda big, you might be fine). If not, you would not need to inject it.
And I think your odds are good with the glass, but you first.
Thanks to the Obamacare provisions for preexisting conditions, in my case the Diabeetus, I was able to get insurance coverage to offset the cost of this delicious cupcake my wife made.
How much does a bottle like that cost in the US, anyway?
(My BF is diabetic, but I’ve never seen a unit cost for a bottle of humalog – another reason to be glad we live in Norway, I guess.)
A bottle of insulin without insurance coverage can cost over $120, which I have had to pay on a few occasions. With my insurance it is now about $40 per bottle.
Oh ouch. That works out to rather a lot of money per year, even with the insurance.
I love when telemarketers and bloggers avoid my last name Fager like the plague. Say it straight! :D
Looks to be a 40 carb, 60%/40% bolus over 4 hours
As a diabetic I find this hilarious and beneficial.
Diabetic here. FYI a krispy kreme has fewer carbs
Well, they are basically made of grease. Timmies for superlative justice.
