    I currently manage my type one diabetes using Novorapid in an Omnipod pump, and monitor my levels using a Libre sensor converted to a full CGM with a MiaoMiao transmitter. I fingerprick first thing in the morning to calibrate my system, and whenever I drive, but always at least twice a day.

    In theory, there’s no difference between theory and practice.

    In practice, there is.
