As for the Type 1 game, Adele had a few ups and downs. With all the home-made food, we were guesstimating the carb content quite a bit. We had inserted a CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) sensor on December 22nd and it was working well giving pretty accurate blood glucose readings. We really wanted one on Christmas eve and Christmas day since the daily routine is quite different from other "normal" days. It makes checking Adele's blood sugar so much easier (and quicker) like in church for example when you don't have to take out needles, meter, test strip... We removed the sensor on Boxing day (5 days after putting it in) after Adele begged us to do so. The sensor still worked, but Adele's winter dry skin becomes so itchy after 3 days. She litterally itches the skin right off until it bleeds. The one thing that I find the CGM useful for is to prevent lows. A summary of Dec 26th (after removing the CGM) supports this:
7:45 am -> 2.9 low (52 for US readers)
So, 4 lows and 2 highs. I'm sure that we would have caught these with the CGM. Because of the dry itchy skin, we have been on a CGM vacation since then, but will be inserting a new one in tonight in preparation for New Years Type 1 gaming. Happy New Year !!
Oh yeah, and thanks for the comments on the last post. I really appreciate your feedback and support.
