Two unrelated questions.
Why do sensors stop reading fluid? Right now I am in my 4th week with a sensor it is is very accurate. Why do sensors fail? I would think if inserted properly and kept safe they should continue to read fluid for a long period of time. Why do some sensors last ten days and others last a lot longer?
There are different opinions as to proteins causing a rise in BG. I have read that protein can cause BG to rise in 3-6 hours after eating and at a rate of 1g protein will convert to .5g carb.
I have also read that proteins increase insulin resistance which means BG will rise because insulin is not as effective. What do others find concerning protein and their effect on BG?
