Tandem x2 with g5 pump, so far this signal loss thing is making me crazy!

No comments:
How many of you using the tslim x2 with g5 integration are having signal loss issues nonstop? I know I am.  My phone has ZERO issues keeping the signal.  ZERO.  The pump, on the other hand, cant keep the damn signal at all. Especially at night while Im covered up. I have for EIGHT YEARS worn my pump in a sports type bra thing in a baby sock so I can hear alarms. Well the only damn alarm I get is SIGNAL LOSS! WTF TANDEM?  If it werent for my phone my dexcom would be worthless. I am calling Tandem tomorrow and hopefully all the other people having this issue call also. How will this setup be the artificial pancreas loop pump? I sure dont know.

Hope for our future

No comments:
My friend Molly McElwee Malloy's hard work on this team gives me hope. http://illimitable.virginia.edu/askmore/diabetes/  This is the artificial pancreas that uses a tslim x2 pump and G5 Dexcom sensor, the setup I personally am currently wearing. We are hoping and praying for 2018 FDA approval!

The best low carb cookie I have tried ever!

No comments:
These are THE BEST low carb cookies I have EVER made! I followed the recipe exactly as listed, I even had to order the peanut flour she uses and had to order vanilla whey protein, I used Integrated Supplements vanilla whey because we love the chocolate flavor so much. I am going to make more today because I accidentally burned half of mine and my dough was too soft. DO NOT TRY THEM WARM, they taste like total crap. I almost threw all mine away, tried them one more time before I tossed them and they were really good! https://lowcarbyum.com/low-carb-gluten-free-chocolate-chip-cookies/

My new tslim X2 Insulin Pump came today!

No comments:
Today was day 1 of another 4 year journey with an insulin pump. This is my third pump/4yr relationship with a pump. Lol!

My original tslim went out of warranty 2 months ago. Talk about sweating it. I had to wait for new insurance to kick in a month ago and it took the new insurance a month to approve it.

I got the new tslim x2 with integrated Dexcom G5 data!

I am excited and thankful to have this technology in my hands. I am even more excited for the upcoming closed loop pump that takes the Dexcom data and self regulates my blood sugar. I have friends on Facebook in the final patient trials, this is such an exciting time in my lifes journey living with type 1 Diabetes.

I am hopeful that it will be in 2018 sometime. I am thankful to have the pump that will just have to be plugged into the computer, updated and will use the latest closed loop technology.

Here's to four more years attached to a medical device that hopefully in one year be doing me a whole lot more good!
