Continuing the discussion from Dexcom accuracy:
Hi Jacob - I split this topic off from the previous thread so I don’t stray too far off topic there. Here are two threads I wrote about Loop, one when I started in November 2016 and one at the one-year mark in November 2017.
I have been happy with using Loop. I would not willingly go without it. I also low-carb but probably in the 50-75 grams/day, not as strict as the Berstein 6-12-12 routine.
For exercise I will set Loop at a higher target, 95-105 mg/dL (5.3-5.8) about 60 minutes before I start the exercise. My usual Loop target is 83-84 mg/dL (4.6). My preferred exercise routine is walking, so I likely would need to add carbs and/or set a higher BG target for a more aggressive cardio workout.
I use this USB 6-port charger and charge my iPhone, RileyLink, and Dexcom receiver as I sleep.
Since the RileyLink uses wireless tech to communicate, I just lay it on the bed nearby and it communicates quite well. The weak link is between the pump and the RL so I try to keep those two near each other. I use a 43" pump infusion set which makes this relatively easy.
