When we took the sensor out, this is what we found....
Yes...thats a crimp in the wire. Is it normal for the Dex sensor needle to bend like that?
I'm assuming that maybe that was why it wasn't more accurate than it was?
The last 6 days with it have been interesting. I'm excited to see what the results reveal. By the looks of her blood sugars on her chart, I don't think any changes will be made yet. She's still all over the place and there really wasn't a clear pattern this week. The last couple weeks, she's run high during her 2am checks and this past week she was in normal range every single night. I'm glad I listened to my "Mommy gut" and didn't make the changes to her basal the way the NP suggested when we went for her check up last Monday. I wanted to wait and see what Dex picked up before we made those changes and she agreed to let me wait. If we had made those adjustments, we'd of been battling SEVERE lows!
I'm getting ready to email blood sugars and I looked at the summary from her pump print out.
Average BG- 135
In Target- 56.41%
Number of Tests- 78
Average number of tests per day- 9.75
This is the BEST her averages have been since she started on the pump. Could this be a break-thru? I sure hope so!
