Falling Test Strips (better than failing test strips)

Several years of test strips, falling from the sky. Each one represents a decision I made in my diabetes care: take insulin/eat food/wait to eat/take GlucoLift/keep on trucking.

Made for Diabetes Art Day’s “Strip Safely” edition. From the Diabetes Art Day website: “Diabetes Art Day is collaborating with the Strip Safely initiative to raise awareness about the important issue of test strip accuracy. Blood glucose test strips are at the center of diabetes life, and BG results inform all of our diabetes care decisions. The Strip Safely initiative calls on everyone affected by diabetes to send letters supporting policy change to their government representatives. Printed letters do not capture and convey emotion the way visual art can though, so everyone affected by diabetes is invited to join this special edition of Diabetes Art Day.”
