Hello TuDiabetes community:
I use a Dexcom G5 and a Tandem tSlim X2 pump.
I just fell, broke my wrist and had surgery to install a plate.
While I think that I can do much of what is needed one-handed, filling cartridges looks to be the trickiest thing. I normally use 150-155 ml every 3 days. As I live alone, I want to minimize the number of times that I need to ask for help.
I am considering:
Getting help prefilling several cartridges and storing them in the fridge.
Filling each cartridge with 3 ml (a six day supply), but changing the tubing and inset every 3 days.
Has anyone tried something like this when you have been mechanically challenged? Or have any other tricks?
