Re: [IPk] Continuous Glucose Monitoring



Hi

I have found this ratio talk very interesting and I feel much better about 
the nurse suggesting I make the changes in basal to avoid the extra at 
meals.

I wish I had found this conference 21 months ago.  I have until this recent 
episode been doing much of what is said here and have been congratulated on 
the results I have been getting but they could have been so much better if I 
had had someone to bounce ideas off.

At the moment I am doing as I am told and making suggestions but things will 
be much easier in the future.  Yesterday, I did actually fast, but more 
because I did not feel like having breakfast and it crossed my mind that I 
could see what was happening more clearly.  I think it is an excellent idea 
to try this more.  Thanks everyone.

June
