Day 4 Diabetes Blog Week: Changes

Today’s topic: Changes Today let’s talk about changes, in one of two ways.  Either tell us what you’d most like to see change about diabetes, in any way.  This can be management tools, devices, medications, people’s perceptions, your own feelings – anything at all that you feel could use changing.  OR reflect back on some changes you or your loved one has seen or been through since being diagnosed with diabetes.  Were they expected or did they surprise you?

One thing that has changed for me personally as a parent is sleep! I get up to check on my daughter every night at 2 am.  The CGM helps but there are nights when it goes off with false alarms and there are times when I  don’t hear it (and it’s a life saver then).  So that leads to a change I would like to see being able to access the information from other devices (and I know there are some who have been able to achieve it but it’s not a perfect system available to all).  I think it will get there and that will be wonderful.  I also pray for a full cure but love the technological advancements being made in the meantime.

  1. I think it’s so amazing reading about all the D-parents and how they wake up every night in the middle of the night to check their kid’s blood sugar. Cheers to you!
