"I think it's 300mg daily. I don't know of the other 2 brands, but my endo informed me that one that was recently released also has the 1-year free deal and I think the other has recently been FDA approved so should be coming out shortly.…"

Kimberly replied to Anthony's discussion 'FDA Approves Dexcom Software with Artificial Pancreas Algorithm' in the group Dexcom Users
"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…"

hi kimberly but my friend was already embarassed and in a bad way and I dont think insisting that she cause a scence would have been the best option right then and there . I think we did the best thing we could in the choice to go home and try another flight in a couple of days . well for the trips from now on we will just do Mdi s which is what I do cause I cannot afford a pump . so the best option we figure is that since no one has bothered to return her phone call . thanks for your weighing in though appreciated very much .

Too cool! I wanted to be a robotic engineer when I grew up, but somehow I became an artist instead. Now I am moving back into the technology field once again. Where once tech'y stuff was a hobby and art was my job, I am almost done switching those both around, heh.

Take care, amiga.

I noticed you made the switch to the pump fairly quickly, if you don't mine me asking, was it an easy transition for you?

Hi Kimberly. Pretty cool pics/job. Just thought I'd reach out and say hi and ask if you know Salty & Sweet. She's another ME/Robotics type on the forum. Thought you guys might want to hook up.
