dxclancy replied to awg0681's discussion 'To low carb or not to low carb'
""As long as I give myself proper insulin for the carbs I don't have a problem with my BG being out of control after meals regardless of whether I have 200 carbs a meal or 60." 1. I'm going to postulate that this is true. That you…"

dxclancy replied to Jennifer's discussion 'Restarting sensors and Error 1' in the group Dexcom Users
"Even when insurance pays for them, I really like to get 2+ weeks out of them. The reason is accuracy. Occasionally i get a sensor that is accurate from the get-go, but often it takes about 3 days for one to round into enough accuracy for me to trust…"

dxclancy replied to Marci's discussion 'Charging Receiver Battery' in the group Dexcom Users
"I leave it on my nightstand at night, and so just charge it there overnight when it needs it."
Mar 12, 2012
dxclancy replied to Jennifer's discussion 'Restarting sensors and Error 1' in the group Dexcom Users
"I also feel that in the last few months, my sensors have consistently been failing around 10 days, when previously i'd always get 2 weeks plus, and often the adhesive would be the failure point."

dxclancy replied to Jennifer's discussion 'Restarting sensors and Error 1' in the group Dexcom Users
"I've had mine for 2 years. Until the last 4-6 months or so I'd regularily been able to get more than 2 weeks, and a few times I made it to a 3rd restart. Record is 23 days. Sometimes i'd lose the sensor because the adhesive failed…"

dxclancy replied to BlessedLife's discussion 'Length of Tubing for my pump (How do you choose?)' in the group Pumping Our Insulin
"The tubing won't kink or clog. I would go with the shortest tubing unless you specifically know you will need longer. Less tubing to have to manage. Mine is 23". At night, I've found the best place to wear it, if you wear a shirt, is…"

dxclancy replied to Andrew's discussion 'Accidental bolusing' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I've never had this happen, and personally wouldn't go through the hassle of locking it. Also, hitting the arrow keys in the right combination with the ok button has a much lower probability than just hitting the ok button. I do have…"

dxclancy replied to trinsmum's discussion 'Square Bolus' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Combo boluses (Bolusi?) can help with certain foods, but I've found them to be very much trial and error. You have to figure out what works for you. It helps a lot to have a CGM like dexcom. it also takes some trust. I've noticed that…"

dxclancy replied to Alissa's discussion 'Basal or I:C which is the culprit?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Seems reasonable. You could choose a day when her BG is good at 7-7:15 and skip breakfest. Then see what it does until 10a when she would normally eat a snack. If it goes up, it's a basal adjustment. If it holds steady, it's a morning I:C…"

dxclancy replied to Dave S's discussion 'Animas Ping Self-Destructing Belt Clips'
"I've had my pump for about a year and haven't broken the clip, but after about 4 or 5 months it "loosened" up and now the gap between the two prongs is like half an inch! It was nice and tight when i first got it, almost too…"

dxclancy replied to dickrichard's discussion 'Good News! Diabetes is now controllable.'
"I was eating 15 carbs each time. My I:C ration is 1:5, so that's 3 units. My ISF is 20, so basically 15 carbs would raise me 60 points. Look at worst case scenario: let's say my BG is 100 and i eat 15 carbs and FORGET TO TAKE A SHOT. My BG…"

dxclancy replied to dino's discussion 'Dexcom Adhesive - sweaty guy needs it to last longer' in the group Dexcom Users
"You probably know this, but it bares mentioning. I have always put my new dexcom on directly after a shower. The one time I didn't (morning shower but put it on in the evening) the edges began to peel up at about day two, which is *much* sooner…"

dxclancy replied to dickrichard's discussion 'Good News! Diabetes is now controllable.'
"me four. When I went on a low carb (well, low everything) diet primarily to lose weight, my BG control was by far the best I've ever attained. (And I lost 40lbs!) When you're only eating 15 carbs 5 times a day, you can adjust with smaller…"

dxclancy replied to lisa c's discussion 'airport suggestions' in the group Dexcom Users
"To be clear, I think the OP was not interested in security issues as much as during flight. I wear mine during the flight and do not turn it off. I asked a flight attentdant once if i should turn it off when they said "all electronics…"

dxclancy replied to Catherine Jane Vancak's discussion 'Switching Pumps?!?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Awful that your doctor said he wouldn't be supportive. Perhaps this is different for finely tuned atheletes like yourself, but I have found that since my insulin is always so much more effective when I exercise, it usually is fine for me to…"
