"Yes! Although it seems to be "settling down" now. The first couple of sensors were always at least 20 points off, but now it is usually within 10 points probably 75% of the time. Which is still worse than it was before for me."
"I've been on the full dose for almost 6 months. I have had many fewer swings - haven't really had an actual low blood sugar in maybe a couple of months. I rarely hit 200 anymore and when I do, it tends to come down quickly without needing…"
"Dude - I was totally where you are now, 7 years ago. 32yo, hoping that it was Type 2 b/c that meant I didn't have to deal with scary insulin and OMG NEEDLES! I messed with my head b/c I did entirely too much research on this stuff. You…"
