Well, it is almost here! I did a training sessions today so the trial personnel can roll it out to everyone else. There were 2 of us. Myself who has been pumping since 1990 and another woman who is using MDI. So they had both sides from a training standpoint. And wouldn’t you know it, I was the one one with the problems! That is because they are using an auto inject infusion set🙁
I just really hate these things & I of course messed up the first one. I just like the metal ones where I control everything. But once I got through the infusion set issue, it was very, very easy.
It will take about 4-5 days for the system to learn what my normal meal is. So no carb counting, just gotta say if it is normal, bigger or smaller, which I can do for each meal. So if my breakfast meals are always 25 carbs and that is normal, than if I do pancakes I would say bigger. But dinner if my normals is 70 & I want pizza at 140 I would say bigger. So that is cool that each meal can fine tuned.
Because it is a clinical trial, there is no playing with it. They actually want everyone using it to just let it go. So today after my first lunch I ended up at 295 (and yes, felt like crap!) but it took a few hours and it came in line. I can’t take any injections unless I start running ketones, or Afreeza because it will only confuse the system. So we were told just let it go. We have high blood sugar procedures and I have low blood sugar procedures (I have to get up each night at 2 to test-FDA safety procedures). [image|666x500]
So after just one afternoon, I don’t like the infusion sets which I’m sure there will be options later and charging. They suggest charging everyday even if just for 15 minutes like when showering. I currently have to charge but not everyday. But I will keep you posted on how it goes and when they will be starting the real trial. With holidays it might not be until after the first of the year.
