Hooray! Just before dinner, I got a call from MedTronic Minimed. My newly upgraded insulin pump will arrive tomorrow and I was approved for the continuous glucose monitoring system.
I have had problems here recently with my blood sugar going to low. My doctor told me at my last visit, he considers me to be a brittle diabetic. I snack when I have to, but don't like to. I have been having to have a snack before bed time so I won't wake up too low. This morning my BS was 68. Too low.
With my continuous glucose monitoring system, my sensor will check my blood sugar every few second and will warn me if I am headed for a high blood sugar or low blood sugar. I hate the feeling of being too low, just as bad as feeling too high. Maybe with this new gadget, I will never have to feel that way again!
Thank God for modern science and the amazing things that diabetics like me can use to control it. I don't want to be another amputee statistic!
