Hi everyone. Sorry if this update gets a little confusing, but after the 5th day of nonstop waking up to multiple alarms going off since this month has started, I thought I would take a picture of my number that was being shown on the phone after eating a snack at 5:30 am today and then breakfast. This number is also after having 62 carbs. and doing 3 units of insulin afterwards.
The first alarm woke me up at 12:17 am because the receiver thought I was dropping. When I did my test at that time, it was 282 mg/dl on the monitor for testing. The number on the receiver said I was 204 with two arrows straight down. The alarm/number on the receiver at 5:30 said I was 80 -> when I was 83 mg/dl, so I had a pineapple juice and a mini shake before going back to sleep for an hour before breakfast time. I'm thinking that I may need to lower the bedtime insulin dose if this keeps up, but I don't want to drop the dose too much. At the moment, I use 9 units of long acting before bed with my nighttime snack and test. My fast acting is between 0-17 depending on how many carbs. I eat at each meal.
In other news dealing with the numbers/sensor, there has been some times on and off that the sensor wasn't giving numbers and there would be Sensor Error/No Data, but there was data on the phone. I'm not sure how that's possible, but this is what has been going on on Friday and part of yesterday.
Well, this is all for right now. More information to come in a few days unless something comes up sooner. I'm suppose to change this sensor on Wednesday late night, so I hope it lasts that long.
Stay safe, happy and healthy! Watch this page!
