"There a lot of "tricks" to the CGM and each of us do things differently. I have had my MM CGM for 4? years now and here are some of my tricks: -I wear each sensor for 7 days-at three & six days I trick it by a link to New Sensor. It…"

Sue replied to Jenny's discussion 'CGM bruising'
"Jenny, unless you did something really wrong at insertion (in which case the new sensor would fail) it is probably the location. I even get bruised around the transmitter, depending on the location and how I lay on it. Shelby is correct, though. I…"

I have a Paradigm 722 insulin pump. It is working fine, but has some minor wearing down. I called Medtronics and started the upgrade process. I am looking into getting the CGMS this time. Just not sure this is the right decision. I am thinking of the future. I am still hoping that soon the CGMS and the Insulin Pump will be one unit. My primary ins will cover 80% and secondary should pick up the rest. Also, I have a $500 trade in. Wondering if I should wait and see what the future holds.....JENNYSee More

Diabetes and Carnival Cruise

Posted on July 8, 2010 at 7:01pm 3 Comments

I am going on a Carnival Cruise, I will have my insulin pump. I will also bring pump supplies, insulin and syringes(incase pump malfunctions)in a carry on bag. Should I be concerned about going through security? will I encounter a problem with my syringes.

Hello! How are you today?

Glad to read that your cruise went well - except for that mishap in Mexico. Other then that - did you find you had pretty good BG's during the cruise? I know for me (I do 1-2 cruises a year - I love to be pampered - since I usually am the cook/cleaner/crew on our own sailboat (have a 30' Catalina) and we're doing a trip next month for a few weeks ) - anyway - my BG's when I'm cruising both with commercial and my own - I use less insulin (have to reduce basal) - and it's almost like I have no diabetes. With the pump I find it much easier to adjust the basal setting then with MDI - but on my next commericial cruise (NCL in Dec) - I'm going to try cruising without pump - and will just remove it when I wear (or can fit) into my tight little dresses I want to wear in the evening (will monitor BG frequently and shot up with fast acting insulin as needed - but highly doubt I'll have to do this if I'm running around).
Anway, didn't mean to write so much, as usual, verbal diarreaha of the finger tips - that's me - write, write, write .

Jenny - I wrote this in a forum posting - but incase you didn't subscribe to it - here's my little two cents worth on your upcoming cruise (can you pack me in your luggage - huh? huh? huh?).
Jenny - I've been on 3 cruises since starting on the pump. It's not like the airport where you are screened to come on board. Make sure you ask for a sharps container - I only started asking for this on a few years ago - makes for less crap to bring back home (used sharps) - just leave it with the cruise line - and then you have more room for souvenirs etc.! I bring everything to take care of my diabetes regime (even a loaner pump) - so don't worry - you will have lots of fun!
