Erika: Yes , but if your carrying the juice for a low you can get juice on the plane or buy from store on the secure side. You need documentation that your diabetic from doc they will swab the can and you may get a pat down. I just carry a sandwich with me to eat on the plane and some candy for those long 6 hour flights.

wow the more i hear about cgm's the less i want one. but on the other hand, i can't ever remember to check my sugars, so ....

Eat! Check your blood sugar with your monitor. When you calibrate at least with your monitor you can give it an accurate reading. Plus when you basal you can bive it an accurate reading,

Betsy mine is a two hour wait and my CDE does not want me to eat as you can't calibrate with rapidly changing BG like those caused by eating. I will be fine - will just continue to monitor my BG and have a non carb snack while I wait
Comment by Betsy Whitehead on December 6, 2010 at 11:19am
Heather, if you just changed your sensor, you will have a 3 hour wait. You should be able to eat....don't get low!
Comment by Heather-E on December 6, 2010 at 11:14am
Just looked at my pump again and now it is saying I have to calibrate in two hours so guess I am stuck with waiting! Dunno what happened with he first warm up I did but this is frustrating - guess that alert meant I needed to restart. Live and learn! Luckily my BG was a little high this morning so should be able to wait - I am just hungry but I can eat something light and carb-free I guess. Thanks for the quick help! I normally can get hold of my CDE but she doesn't work Monday and she didn't answer her home number or cell. If I kept trying I am sure I would get her eventually but you guys were faster LOL :) Thanks again!
Comment by Betsy Whitehead on December 6, 2010 at 11:07am
Heather, you will need to wait 3 hours total for the prompt to insert your BS.
Comment by Michelle Hughes on December 6, 2010 at 11:05am
When this happend mpve the pump closer to where the sensor is. Go ahead an eat, because you dont want to get a low blood sugar and pass out. Do find the lost sensor after 15 min. If this doesnt work try doing new sensor on the pump. After trying all that see what happens. Where are you located? If you cant get a hold of your CDE I can give you mine and she is always available.
Comment by Heather-E on December 6, 2010 at 11:01am
HELP! Can't get hold of my CDE. Did my first Sensor change today for my CGM and waited over two hour sand got no prompt for BG even though I know I did the link step. I did get a weak signal alert at one point so moved the pump but would this have cancelled the link?? Do I need to do another 2 hour wait to link the sensor or can I just do a find lost sensor 15 minute wait? I am getting hungry but know I can't eat till I have calibrated - Please help if you can!
