I do my best to test my blood glucose as regularly as possible – I’m told it’s the cornerstone of proper diabetes care. But, I’m human. And at times absent minded. If I’m lucky enough to enjoy a few consecutive hours of “control”, my absent mindedness often takes a stronger hold of me. Part of it is wanting to “ignore” diabetes for a bit. Live a “normal” life or something like that. But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that part of me doesn’t want to disrupt the trend in case my Dexcom line is off.
With that mentality, I’m not sure how to take this.
It’s nice to know that even when my Dexcom craves data it can still be reliable. But knowing that this thing can still be reliable outside of normal calibration periods means I’m likely to test the limits of how long I can trust the G4 without calibrating.
I suppose it’s good to know what the true limits of the G4 are, as long as I’m safe about it. Right?
