I am just starting taking my blood with a kit...sticking my fingers and checking a meter. My range does not seem to be unusual. The lowest I have seen was 80...and I was feeling very sleepy then. I had a high reading of 154 but that was probably taken too soon after eating. Do you use and rely on a blood testing kit. Do you think its a useful tool? I am still not 100% certain that I am could be hypo-glycemic could be pre-diabetic...or could be some type of food allergy that is putting me into a powerful sleep state after eating carbs (gluten allergy?) I dont know yet. I am yet to take more tests.

I have a farm in St John, Ks. It's been in the family since the late 1890's. My great-grandfather was Andrew Jackson Michaux. The Michaux name is a famous name in the Great Bend area.

I'm new to the pump and the CGM so I have a lot to absorb from everyone's experience at all this; it does seem to be like there are new challenges all the time!

Thanks for the great welcome Linzie -- and I love your photos. And I want an omnipod for my son! But they aren't available on national health yet here in the uk...hard enough to pursue just getting him a pump. Sigh. Thanks again. Best.
