Welcome to Claire Montgomery’s all new “Diabetes Proverbs”! The whole concept is that I take a well know proverb, and turn it into a “diabetes proverb”. For example:
A beeping pump gets basal rates adjusted
This is a tribute to my CGM (continuous glucose monitor) for driving me crazy by doing things like beep. Beeping isn’t a bad thing, it just says that your numbers are off and maybe you should adjust. But the only way it can help is if you are a good diabetic and actually take the time to plug in your Carelink and send it off to your doctor. Which reminds me, because I need to do that.
All I’m saying is that when your CGM alarms, do something about it instead of ignore it. And because of that you will be all the more healthy and feel better.
