So yesterday was my third day on this sensor, and as a result, it quit. Typically I aim for more than three days on one sensor, so I always restart it on day 3 and keep on trucking.
This sensor has been working remarkably well. I’ve actually been really pleased and was even starting to regret some of the mean things I said about my CGMS a while back.
Ever since I restarted it yesterday, I’ve been getting nothing but crap from it.
It says I’m low. I test and I’m 8.0 mmol/l (144 mg/dl).
It says my bloodsugar is all kinds of good. I test and I’m 15.6 mmol/l (281 mg/dl). Hellooo…..?? This is where I could have used some sensor help!!
Maybe it’s the hydration thing again. I’m still working on that, but I thought I was reasonably well hydrated.
Maybe I’m calibrating at bad times, but I didn’t think I was.
Maybe it’s just because it’s more than 3 days old, but I don’t know why it would go from super accurate to craptastic in such a short time span. (It was almost literally right after the restart.)
To be continued….
