Hi all! My daughter is a competitive dancer and we had out first competition a few weeks ago, I pretty much ran around behind her backstage, around to the side for run throughs and up and down two flights of stairs to the dressing rooms for 8 hours straight.
I don't mind doing it, and we were able to test before each dance before she went on stage to avert lows, but the pace is pretty crazy and she got away from me a couple of times, in a huge performing arts center, away from her supplies and a good half mile away from her dressing room and ' main supply hub'.
I was thinking of getting some kind of tiny backpack for her to pack her omnipod bag, glucose tab's couple of carb fruits for snacks, extend bars,
it will have to be small and she will have to be able to dance with the thing on her back, otherwise she will lose it...
how is everyone else handling competitive sports? we are really struggling without any cgm right now. Below 80 she's off balance, and over 200 she FORGETS HER DANCES. Like just stands there like a deer in headlights... Big problem... It's so hard for me to see such a beautiful dancer who was at the top of her group fall to the bottom of her class in 9 months... we are switching endo's due to not getting at least some consideration for a cgm device and hopefully we will be able to look more into it soon.
