"Well said. I have only had to use glucagon twice (in 3 days, no less) in 3 years now, and I'm not sure she even remembers it. Plus, I drew it up in a regular insulin syringe, so it wasn't as traumatic as the one that comes in the…"

Discussing T1D Complications with Children

Just curious, at what age did you start talking to your T1D child about potential complications (hypo and hyperglycemia, DKA, etc.)? How do you start the conversation and how do you keep it age-appropriate?My daughter is 6 and often hypo-unaware. Sometimes, when I give her something for a low, such as a roll of Smarties, she will take her time eating them. I need her to understand how important it is to treat a low quickly, but I don't want to scare her.See More

"Susan, where are you wearing the sensor? My daughter used to wear it at the top of her bum until she started getting horrible, itchy rashes. Turns out it was a fungal skin infection. She is now wearing it on her back, just above her waistline, and…"

"So you don't have to connect the "uploader" phone to the receiver like you do with NS? I assume the receiver would have to be within 20 ft of the phone?"

BGsolved replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'Anybody using 505 software update yet? Is it that much more accurate?' in the group Dexcom Users
"You have an interesting point there. I think that the new algorithm is capable of adjusting over time as the system gets more calibrations from the blood tester. I think that artificial intelligence might be a lot farther than we know at this point.…"
