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."

Kimberly replied to Playthebanjo's discussion 'Any type 1s taking INVOKANA?'
"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…"

Kimberly replied to shelby76's discussion 'Only one option for dexcom rise/fall rates on new update' in the group Dexcom Users
"Previous to the update, I could only select one arrow or 2, not both."

Kimberly replied to Sey's discussion 'New to Diabetes...'
"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…"

Kimberly replied to sdkate's discussion 'Differences in diabetic supplies'
"Get your doc to do the preauthorization thing. I had the same thing happen to me this year - stopped covering Apidra which is the only rapid-acting I've ever used. I have to get the preauthorization every year, but it wasn't a hassle at…"

Kimberly replied to niccolo's discussion 'realizing I fit the MODY profile well, any MODYers or others have insights to share?'
"You sound just like me. My basal during the afternoon/early evening is 0.05 - I would set it to 0 but I can't on my pump. If I don't suspend for 2-3 hours before working out, I will drop quickly and severely. My ratios are the same as…"

Kimberly replied to Anthony's discussion 'FDA Approves Dexcom Software with Artificial Pancreas Algorithm' in the group Dexcom Users
"Well, apparently all I had to do was complain about it publicly. Since I wrote this, the last 3 readings have been within 2 or 3 points of my Dex. Maybe I'm on an upswing?"

Kimberly replied to Anthony's discussion 'FDA Approves Dexcom Software with Artificial Pancreas Algorithm' in the group Dexcom Users
"OK - I've been using the updated algorithm for 2 sensors now, and it is really depressing how much less accurate this is than before. Is anyone else experiencing this? I keep hoping that at some point the accuracy will just magically improve,…"

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.

Glad to hear you are doing well and that you had plenty of supplies for your D!

Take care, amiga.

hi! I'm ish, I stumbled upon your page and wanted to say that your shirt in picture 3 is rockin and I love your necklace.

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.
