Hello, new here as well and trying to figure out the navigation of the site. Trying to edit preferences, avatars, etc but I do not see them on the home page (I watched the video and I don’t see any screens that remotely look like the video and the preferences page does not work).
Our 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with T1 almost a month ago. We are coping as best as possible and learning as much as we can. She is a trooper as she gives herself shots and checks her own blood.
We will probably be getting a Dexcom CGM which will require her to have a phone (no big deal really) but it looks like the G5 app (and eventually the G6 app) only work with certain Android phones. It seems like it will work with Android 7.0 only on CERTAIN phones. I am still a little unsure. Best bet might be to get her a Straight Talk iPhone 6 as those have come down in price and the apps seem to work with Apple phones. I think my wife and I would only need the “Dexcom Follow” app and I assume it will work on any phone (mine is a couple of years old and runs Android 5.1 – I have no desire to upgrade as it does everything I need it to do, I hate upgrading phones).
Anyway, we had the usual symptoms. Thirsty all the time (including the middle of the night) and too many bathroom breaks. We took her to the pediatrian who immediately admitted her to the hopsital and our journey into the “secret society” began.
For the most part she only needs the Levemir pen once a day, Novalog maybe two days a week. Still in the honeymoon period and we watch those carbs and have been able to control it to the point where most of the time Novalog isn’t needed.
