Short & sweet

Life’s been hectic and blogging time’s been scarce, but I’ve got a few moments to share this quick anecdote:

On Monday night, I had pizza for dinner before lacing up the skates to help out at my son’s hockey practice.  The pizza means I had an extended (dual-wave) bolus in action; the skating means I had a reduced temporary basal in effect. I felt kinda foolish, taking such measures which essentially cancelled one another out.  But you know what?

It worked.

(Maybe the message would be more dramatic if I had a photo).

Meanwhile, please go read Sue from Pennsylvania’s post at Test, Guess, and Go.  You may not think Medicare rules may apply to you, but someday they will. And as more and more private insurers follow a “standard” (i.e. Medicare), this could get worse before it gets better… unless we make ourselves heard! [UPDATE: link to Sue’s post corrected!]

  1. Thanks, Scott, for helping to share Sue’s message. I’m 3 years away from Medicare and getting more scared day by day.

    And congrats for figuring out pizza. At least once….


  2. Thanks for sharing my message. I am appreciative of any help I can get to get this issue known.


  3. Yes Scott, thank you for sharing Sue’s blog and helping get the word out. I will be of Medicare age next year, and not looking forward to losing my Dexcom!
