Note to self:
If, in the middle of the night the Dexcom beeps and tells you that you’re running HIGH, the best course of action is to get out of bed, check your blood sugar, and correct said HIGH. Poor choices include but are not limited to the following: Resetting your HIGH alarm to 250mg/dL so that you won’t hear another beep unless your BG is really up there.
Why? Because the next day, you’re going to get up and go to Pilates and eat breakfast and take a normal bolus and get all the way to lunch thinking “I’ve totally got this whole diabetes thing down” before you realize that your BG has been waaaaay over 200mg/dL for the better part of the morning and you never did a damn thing about it because your Dex didn’t go off…
Because YOU reset it in the middle of the night. That’s some lazy diabetes management right there folks.
And now that I put it here on the blog, I can’t hide from it anymore! No more night time alarm changes!
