    So saw Professor Amiel, today at Kings, pump & blood glucose machine down loaded. Said I thought my Basal's needed changing and she agreed, so set up a holiday and now have a work one. She was very happy with how I've got and that I started to make basal changes. But told me I needed to be a bit more aggressive on the changes. But the ultimate crunch was my 1ac at 6.6%. YAY feel so happy.

    My daughter has made me a loom band in 2 colours of my pump skin. So it matches my pink set and my pink,purple pump skin. As a reward :) for my good work.

    COOL new's :cool: Julie

    No wonder you are so HAPPY :joyful:
    Well done 'you' - worth the hard work you have put in - eh ?

    These loom bands are all the range and so popular with the young
    ones these days .
    Even my granddaughter is into them and she is only 5 .
    Yours sounds great matching up with your pump skins .
    Sounds so really on trend too .

    6.6% is a good a1c and doesnt need to lower to be well. Its important to also retain a degree of hypo awareness and an a1c lower than 6.5% will alter that awareness. A good reason to argue for cgm me thinks.
