ALL - good replies thanks so much, sincerely. I finally got some intuitive reasoning that the reading was calibrating but taking its time to even out. Late, at that point, I said i know myself well enough by now to wake up if need, i’m passing out and let it do its thing. I had an hour conversation with my educator this morning - things were good enough waking up and I switched out the sensor at 3:00 pm today. NO problems so far, even took a shower haha disconnecting myself.
I gather a few things happened - first of all my pump was NOT properly paired to the iPhone - it said it was but i’d try to get on T:connect mobile and it kept wanting me to go through a-z again signing up and that wasn’t right. i guess it was working but not on my doctors range that we input…does that sound right? possibly it was working on a default range setting which is why BG hung high for as long as it did. Last night, before writing to the group, I got the pump paired properly with tandem support and t:connect mobile going properly then all hell broke loose and I got the wonky readings then it tanked then later came back online again at the point as I mentioned above it seemed to be trying to level out…since this morning I have not had a problem - this new sensor is still warming up and I should be getting a new transmitter in a week or so.
Its hard to know with two devises moving - which one do I do what with? since i’ve been using my phone app for dexcom i used that app to switch out the sensor taking a photo of the code. i’m accepting this is another learning curve in all respects…how to eat how to exercise how to shower how to reload how to do everything…
I really appreciate this site for being able to troubleshoot and get some feedback from you guys who have been dealing with this much longer than I have. I had this image of my late maternal Aunt who was a juvenile diabetic and died in the early 60s not long after I was born, I didn’t know her, but to think of her challenges then without any technology or possibly a finger BGM the size of a type writer? I don’t know my heart breaks for all of us, but then I get on with it, and I actually cried on the way home yesterday thinking i was relieved and grateful to have this tech tool I call my Bionic P…happy pumping.
