Hi everyone. This is a picture I had taken last night while having done a new sensor insertion after dinner. I'm so happy that the old sensor that I had used lasted the entire 10 days-- even with some hiccups here and there! This is the 4th sensor that had lasted the correct amount of time. I was extremely surprised about this since I had a feeling that it may not do the entire time because a few times here and there, I was alerted that there was Sensor Error and two mornings having been alarmed for no reason I can figure out. Those two times alarming was before I was suppose to wake up and the numbers weren't even under 200 mg/dl. This confused me since one time was around 4:30-5 am and the other was around 5:30 am.
There was a few times that I had been woken up by the alarm going off because I needed a snack in the early morning. Today was no exception. I was woken up around 5:50 am and had a protein shake and pineapple juice before breakfast. My number was 70 mg/dl when testing and the receiver said I was 76 angling down. For me, this would've gone lower without the snack because we have breakfast around 6:45 or 7 am each day. Also, I got the warning message on the receiver saying that it would be very soon until the Fixed Low/55 alarm would go off. If it had gotten to that point, then the receiver would stop saying how low I was. This would've been bad since I don't feel the lows.
