    We had repeat lows for 2 days now and normally I would change basals tomorrow but I am working and then hubby will meet me at work with the kids and we go to the endo appointment so I am holding off and just am keeping her on a temp basal.
    THen a new thing is we tried Mentos instead of glucose tablets to see if they compare(much cheaper now that Sam's stopped carrying glucose tablets). They are not working well. They are supposed to be 3 grams /piece but we are needing to give her 3-4 at a time.
    I went back to milk until I get some glucose tablets. Much more reliable.
    I cannot stand being without her CGMS. This makes it all the harder, not having that to rely on.
    Anyway, just a vent.

    Well, A1C was acceptable. Still have to wait for more Dexcom sensors as their sales girl just used the offices last one:((I am just glad they believed me and starting using them). Visit went very well, growing well and doing all things normal.
    Still on an every 6 months visit.

    Wow, every 6 months would be nice! Our endo wants to see him every 2-3 months. I am glad it went well, and I hope that you are able to get some more sensors soon!
