Duelling Dexcoms

Copying Bernard, I'm posting a picture of my duelling Dexcoms. This shows some data from this morning, after spending all of Sunday doing yard work. The new Dexcom Seven is on top.

This shows me a couple of things:

  1. They really do track quite well - at one point I got low alarms 30 seconds apart on the two recievers.

  2. The new Dexcom Seven is a little more cautious about jumping up at the first few readings after drinking my juice. Actually I had just tested at 102, so both were quite reasonable. When I finally stopped treating them as alternating snooze alarms and actually looked at the screens this morning, one said 61, the other said 62, and my meter said 61. Can't get better than that!

  3. Obviously, I need to quit my job and become a landscaper. I never see nice in range lines like that after a day of programming. And you don't want to know what I was eating Sunday night, but it did include bolus-free eclair, cookies, and lemon Italian ice - and my yard looks great.

There has been a huge gap in my posting. Life intervened - busy at work, big vacation (took the family to Edinburgh, York and London for 2 weeks), visitors and family parties. I still may be getting another shot at superpowers depending on my bloodwork mid-August. If so, maybe I'll have some time to post ; )

Nice picture. And like mine they track amazingly well.

Now I'm just on the Dexcom seven and so far so good. If I could just cure those terrible carb-cravings, life would be good!
