So far I have calibrated about 4 times a day, is this too much?
When I am getting screwy results, I enter the bg's when off from caveman machine
so I get a printout from dexcom software showing what its doing versus caveman machine, maybe one is not supposed to enter so many entries, but I do when grief.
jim Devlin says it all and i agree. thank you.
Every time I dose insulin from my pump for either a meal or post-meal follow-up. If you read the tech math material in the user's guide you will understand how the math works. Once you have a grasp on the math, you will see entering each and every stick is good. Only exception buried in the guide is NOT TO ENTER MORE THAN ONE STICK per five minutes except on sensor start-up or if the receiver indicates it is required.
Thanks Jay, I will check out the math:)
CDE said enter 2 times/day or the sensor gets confused. choose time when more stable . I have found this is perfect plan and much less fristration that when i was trying to adjst mmore often.
I enter when I get the request, so twice daily. I have tried entering it more often and it tends to get confused. Dex seems to like consistency.
In the 6 months I've used it, I've been fine with 2x per day. However, I have noticed that when my BS is riding the roller coaster, it performs BETTER with more inputs. I haven't really had a chance to see it get confused.
But I've also had it give me its version of "What the *$#$@?!" when I've entered it in, or not even take the number.
Regardless, accuracy on my numbers has been way better than many of the posts on the forum I've read, and I'm in no means stable right now (still dealing with the fun of going from 10 years needle > OmniPod).
Thanks Daniel, good luck with the Omnipod.
