I don't want to hijack either of the other threads but as users of the MM Veo with Low Glucose Suspend, I wanted to share last night's experience.
DD had been low, 41, at 11pm when I was going to bed, treated with juice checked in 20 min. and she had gone up to 73, better but not comfortable for sleeping. Checked again 20 minutes later, 110 ~ ok time for sleep, set alarm for 3am. Slept through alarm.
At 4:50am, I hear the faint beep of the alarm and go running into dd's room. The beeping was alerting because basal was being restarted after being suspended for 2 hours because the sensor reached it's low threshold(64) and shut off basal. Meter BG reading was currently 99.
2 hours with no basal and dd was just at 99. I wonder how low she might have actually dropped.
I gave her 2 tabs, and that combined with the residual effects of no basal for 2 hours had her waking up at 244. Far less than ideal but fixable.
We've only been at this for 3 weeks and have experienced a few false lows, a sensor that seemed to be "stuck" low and of course, the growing pains of learning this new technology.
But in my opinion as an imperfect, fallible substitute pancreas, it was all worth it last night.
