I'm slowly getting used to having this thing attached to my abdomen all day. I want to stick with the abdomen until I get a good handle on my numbers. I've read that some people experience different absorption rates for different sites and I'm trying to limit the number of variables I need to adjust for in the early stages.
I have to admit, it is nice to get away from the multiple injections and the ability to bolus at the touch of a button. I also like the fact that I'm not tied to my twice daily basal injections as well. I can go to bed early or sleep in late and not worry about my BG levels.
My BG levels were a little high for the first week and I knew that my initial levels were a little conservative. We've tweaked my basal levels and hope to finally solve my high morning BG levels due to DP. I've also tweaked my I:C levels. They range from 1:4 in the morning up to 1:10 in the evening. I think I still need some tweaking in my morning calculations, but with lots of testing and my trusty DEXCOM I'm confident that we can dial it in.
Thanks for all the encouraging words and support on this lifetime journey.
