I am using the Dexcom 7+ for almost 2 years. These are my last 3 months stats:
Avg Glucose: 99 - A1C in November: 5.0
% in Range (Range 70-135) 78…Range of (80-120) 58
% HyperG (240+) 0
% HypoG (< 55 ) 4
% Low (55-70) 11
% High (135-240) 9
I wonder whether we are siblings.
My numbers were better at some point in time. The novelty has worn off and I am struggling to hold on to what I have. My main problem is that I think my numbers are good enough. I eat bread at the Italian restaurant - I never used to do that before dex and pump. I not only eat pizza, I order garlic knots too - I never used to do that before dex and pump. I don’t like being low anymore - my hypo awareness has increased to the point that I am uncomfortable below 80.
This sounds like a lot of complaining - quite the opposite: I feel that my quality of life and life expectancy are no longer negatively impacted by my diabetes. I actually might have a leg up since my overall lifestyle is still heavily influenced by my early diabetes days. I am normal- weight, I exercise and I pig out in a controlled manner.
