Dexcom’s G6 Sensor Shines in Early Accuracy Study

No comments:
"Earlier this month, Dexcom shared compelling new details on its longer-wear, less calibration G6 sensor and its partnership with Verily to develop a bandage-like continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device. The G6 sensor is expected to launch in 2018, while the first-gen Verily sensor will launch in late 2018, with a second-gen version coming as early as 2020. Read on for the new details!"

Glucagon tutorials online and smartphone apps for you to download

No comments:
Glucagon emergency kits are something every person taking insulin should have. Glucagon is what is used to save someone who is having a seizure from an extreme low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. If you are taking insulin and do not have a kit please call your doctor and get some. Ask them to write you a prescription for at least 2 or 3. One for your bedside, one to carry with you all the time and one on your main floor of your home.

What the public needs to be informed on about TYPE ONE DIABETES

1 comment:
Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia can happen to anyone with type 1 Diabetes taking insulin. Too much insulin, incorrectly guessing a dose, insulin absorbs faster than usual, exercise, physical activity are all things that can cause a low blood sugar. 

What happened to my friend and doctor Mandy could be any of us and we all know that but we all thought it would never happen. 

Never in a million years did I think this would happen to Mandy with her amazing control she gained following lchf. 

I got brave and put my Dexcom sensor on my calf.

I keep reading how people are using their calf for their Dexcom sensor placement. I look at these pictures and cringe. It looks like it would be horribly painful.

Today I decided what the heck, I wont know until I try it.

I warned my 4 yr old watching me that I might scream, hahaha!  

No screaming involved! I did it and it didn't hurt. I found the fattiest part of my calf and I have seriously got chicken legs. Like they could pass for a 10 year olds legs.  I put it on right below the knee on the inside of my leg.

Im waiting for my 2 hour start up so I dont yet know if it will work or not.  I will keep you posted!  I'll also post a picture when I get out of my pjs.  Lol!
