Re: [IP] Overnight Basal Profiling - How?



Gus (8 dxd 10/20/98) wore the continuous BG monitor for three days  three
weeks ago. Apparently each site is good for about 3 days of readings at the
most.    He and another 8 year old (who's not yet pumping) were the first
pediatric patients in Maine to do so.   The information was helpful, but I
feel like we'd need a weeks worth of readings to feel confident about making
basal changes.  And in fact the staff at the Center for Endocronology hasn't
yet been adeqately trained in analyzing the data.  No question that this
will be a useful tool in the not too distant future.  In the meantime
"packing" two devices for three days was about as much as Gus could take.
And I'm still waiting to go over the data with the MM tech..
