    Yes, it doesn't make it easy having diabetes when we have to stab ourselves so often. So thankful when I got Libre though, certainly cuts down on the finger pricks, although having used it for a while my arms are now very sore. Thanks to LooperCat I now use my chest as well, which helps :)

    Hello friends

    5.9 today is bang on fantastic, especially sleeping in I think I’ve had a positive start with a pump, a few hiccups like I told the rep that correction ratio wouldn’t work in the morning and afternoon. So there was a day where I stayed between 9.0-12.9mmol/l despite bolus wizard suggested corrections.

    I forgot to add that the new Medtronic 780G will be connecting to IOS as well so we’ll be putting on our Apple swag.

    Hi all, congrats to @chris85 type 1, welcome to @Hopeful34, top banana to @LooperCat for the size of THAT one!

    Rubbish start to my day, woke on 2.3, got out of bed and was unbalanced enough to stagger in to the wardrobe. Got sugars back up but still not quite right balance wise, especially if I bend over then straighten up. It's improved but I don't know what it is; wondering whether it may be labyrinthitis as I've just got over a cold....give it a few days I think as no other symptoms. Managed to get to puppy class and have a short stroll rather than walk afterwards. Don't like the feeling though.

    Yes welcome @Hopeful34 and please don’t get hamsters @LooperCat, if Fidel and B******s don’t eat them then they’d drown in that mug. I thought my tea mug was big, that’s enormous.

    Yes just medtronic - but have been offered the 670g as I self fund, so will still have to self fund for the medtronic cgm but it's a much smarter CGM as linked into the pump and can suspend insulin and it adjusts the basal every 5 mins, like wow.. Not sure when i'll get the 670g as will have to wait for approval on this now, but as I have enough G6 sensors to last the year it's no great bother unless the pumps breaks !!
