Why does a deep purple hue on the stick mean the ketones are “large” rather than “high”. Is it really about the size and not the quantity?
The AquaPac really does seem to keep the pump dry in the swimming pool. But if I still obsessively check it every three minutes just to be sure, is there a benefit?
Even if the pump is dry, it still has a hard time hearing my CGM transmitter underwater. I wonder if the Vibe/Dexcom combo is the same.
If they won’t give me a cure, could they at least give me longer tubing? Is that too much to ask?
I should stop being politically correct, and start referring to my blood sugar as BS.
My most recent Motor Error occurred about a half an hour after riding the bumper-cars at a local carnival. I wonder if there’s a connection.
Would it be contradictory to ask for a Nutrition Facts label on booze?
When I finally get hooked up with an Artificial Pancreas, I’m still disconnecting for sex. When it senses my body’s not responding to the insulin or glucagon being delivered, it’ll probably keep increasing the dose so I’ll be at lethal levels by the time I’m plugged back in. The sex had better be worth it.
Note: I ordered the AquaPac after seeing some reviews on it from other PWD’s on social media. (The waterproof Sport-Guard once sold by Medtronic was clumsy, awkward, and a waste of money). It was sold at the time as the “Radio Microphone Case” but then rebranded as the manufacturer caught on to it’s popular off-label use. It is not guaranteed to keep the pump dry, it may inhibit proper insulin delivery, and probably is not endorsed by the pump manufacturers. I took a big risk when I used this thing. If you try it, you also do so at your own risk.
This is not a product endorsement; nobody asked me to write about it and I am receiving nothing for doing so.
