Medtronic Diabetes new 670g is on and pumping!
It, together with my FreeStyle Libre, are going to take my diabetes game to another level.
It’s all great, truly, but it’s still pokes and pricks, and blood and shots. It’s not a cure. But it helps me make sure my body is ready for one when that day comes!
I’ll take it!
Going into a new week with a flat line! 🎉
Here’s the thing about Type 1 Diabetes…
I didn’t DO anything to get this.
I didn’t ask for this.
But yet, throughout my life I’ve had to educate the hell out of people to understand the difference between Type 1 and Type 2.
Sure I would love to lose some weight, but did you know insulin makes you gain weight? Especially stubborn tummy weight?
Did you know I have to wait for the perfect “blood sugar number” to work out? Too high? I go into DKA (bad shit). Too low? Oh, you know, pass out and die. Yes, dramatic? But it’s the truth.
But you better damn believe I’m going to play the hell out of the cards I’ve been dealt. I’m going to LIVE my life, SCREAM at the top of my lung for a cure and never, ever give up. It wouldn’t be fair to the cards if I didn’t. 😉
THIS IS 30 YEARS WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES.
First 10 Days done!
It’s funny, in only 10 days I’ve gotten used to my “Libby”.
I’ve gotten use to only sleeping on one side and not rolling over on her. I’ve gotten used to “beeping” before AND after meals.
I’ve gotten used to making sure I don’t take short cuts through doorways and knocking her of.
But never, ever in 30 years with Type 1 Diabetes have I gotten used to “having” Diabetes.
One day closer to a cure.
It may not be super low, but it’s SUPER flat! Even after breakfast, and that is what you call DELIGHTFUL 💗 Loving my Libby!
So many exciting possibilities on the horizon! If we can make CGM’s (like my Libby and others), maybe they can start being 1. Less cost and 2. Less Painful 💗
Thankful for technology that allows me to manage and track my type 1 Diabetes!
A little-known technology that Fitbit and Apple are exploring could be the answer to healthy eating and peak performance
Glucose monitoring lets people track their blood sugar and see how food affects their body. Normally used by diabetics, the tech may hold promise for others.
Look at that gorgeous, beautiful flat line all night long! 🙌🏼
Day 3 with Libby (as I affectionally call my new little gizmo)
Other then my body pitching a fit over Greek yogurt this morning, and a slight dip coming home…it’s been all within range today! Weeeeeee!
Day 2 of Freestyle Libre and 3 miles on the indoor cycle 🙌
