HELLO FRIENDS

I KNOW I HAVE BEEN OUT FOR A WHILE AND I HAVE MISSED YALL

GOOD NEW FOUNT ME A WONDERFUL DIABETIC SPECIALIST WENT LAST TH

SHE TOLD ME MY NUMBERS WERE GREAT.

BUT WANT TO PUT ME ON DEXCOM G4 PLATIUM CONTINUS GLUCOAST MONITOR

I RECIVED IT IN THE MAIL TODAY IT NOT A PUMP
IT MONITORS MY LEVELS FOR 7 DAY AND GIVES ME TRENDS READING ON THIS IPOD LOOKING THING,

IT WILL TELL ME MORE ABOUT WICH WAY MY SUGAR IS HEADING
INSTEAD OF JUST LOOKING AT IN ON A BLOOD MONITOR…

I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT IT
I WATCH A UTUBE VIDEO WANTED TO PUIT IT ON TONIGHT BUT KINDA SCARED ON HOW TO DO IT AND SET IPOD THING UP

IT HAS A CD AND A 24 HR NURSING LINE BUT I THINK ILL WAIT AND LET MY SPECIALIST SHOW ME

ANY HOW IF ANY ONE USE ONE OF THESE
PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW YOU LIKE IT

THE NEEDLE NOW THAT I GOT PACKAGE LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT HURT OCH

MMMM MY MINDIT NOT SO SURE

GOOD THING INSURANCE PAID FULL COAST.

ILL TRY IT JUST PAIN IT ALL GO AWAY.

I HOPE EVERY ONE IS DOING WELL
LATLEY MY AVEARAGES HAVE BEEN 7 DAY 129
14 DAY 120 I KNOW I STILL HAVE LOTS OF WORK

BEEN SICK FOR 2 WEEKS SO MEDS HAVE LOTS TO DO WITH IT

AND LOTS OF ICE CREAM

MY NEW DIABETIC SPECIALIST IS GREAT

THE FIRST ON I WENT TO DID NOT TELL ME HOW MUCH NOVALOG DROP MY BG
SHE JUST TOLD ME TO TAKE 8 UNITS EVERY TIME I EAT

I EVEN BROUGHT THE PAPER WORK IN TO NEW DR AND SHOWED HER WHAT
THE OLD DR TOLD ME TO DO… I FIRED HER DID NOT LIKE HER

I KINDA FIGURED ON MY OWN I WAS TAKING TO MUCH 8 UNITS DROPPED ME FAST ALL THE TIME SO I WENT TO 5

HAD TO WAIT A MONTH TO SEE NEW DR DIABETIC SPECILIST

SHE INFORMED ME THAT 1 UNIT OF NOVALOG DROPS BS BY 50 POINT
TAKE 1 UNIT FOR EVER 50 GRAMS OF CRABS

IF MY BS IS 250

TAKE THE 250
- minus
100 TARGET BS
=
————————————
150 DIVIDED BY 50 (NUMBER OF POINTS BS WILL DROP)

= 3 UNITS OF NOVOLOG TO TAKE

I WAS JUST SO DAMM MAD AT OLD DR

ALL THAT INSULIN IN MY BODY
AND ALL THE TIMES I CRASHED DO TO HER INSTUCTION

NEW DR WAS OHHHHH SO P.O…

ANY HOW GUYS I HOPE THIS DEXCOM G4 PLATIUM WILL HELP ME

I don't use cgm. A lot of people in dump support group do. They say the accuracy leaves something to be desired. It does NOT replace your regular bs testing. If it is registering low or high my suggestion is u do a finger prick to actually see where u r at.

So glad u found a new Dr and educator. It is so important u trust your healthcare team

Good luck
