Shawn: MyHotCommentsRIGHT ON TIME OR JUST A WEE BIT LATE ... HOPE IT EXCEEDS YOUR EXPECTATIONS!
Since I am extremely busy in rehab with all the physical and occupational therapy, I find that I don't get to wish you all a great day before you have the great day! Hope it was and please excuse my lateness of hour with this greeting.
hi shawn - sorry to only be getting back to you now! that's awesome that you are thinking about moving over here - I love europe and italy (although it took me a little longer to like italy...). talking to fellow expats that have had relatively easy experiences in both france and germany, I think that italy is a different story as far as work visas (next to impossible to get) and everything else is concerned. for me, i have found that italians have a very "italy and italains are the best of everything" attitude and they don't welcome foreigners very warmly....that was most difficult for me. and the key to figuring out health care (I think this is the same in any foreign country) is to find a doctor that will work with you and become your "in" into the system. it took me a while to find that dr for me, but she has helped me enormously in getting a new pump and cgms and everything else I've ever needed! and for me getting a work visa, I couldn't work legally any where (legally) until marrying my italian husband =)
I hope this helps a bit! I moved internationally with my family growing up, and I think every experience is unique and mine in italy has been a little rougher than what I was expecting! let me know if there is absolutely anything else I can help with!
Hi Shawn, I read in your discussion thread ('120 point difference...') that you had early difficulties with a Dexicom unit, but ultimately started working for you. I was wondering if you could share what changed to get your results in line. I'm new to Medtronics' CGMS, and while they are different vendors, my issues sound so closely correlated to yours that it makes me think there is a common underlying nuance. I'm getting wildly incosistent results despite ensuring that I have stable BGs when calibrating and even when I am starting a new sensor. Did you have a bad sensor or sensors? Was there some user error that when corrected improved your results? Any input you may have, would be appreciated. Thanks.
