Home A1C

Today I checked my A1C at home.  It's been 3 months since I had it done in my endo's office and I won't be seeing them again until December, so I'm taking a home A1C test in between visits.  The results:

Back in Business!

My Dexcom order arrived today, which makes me thrilled!  It's just in time for our trip this weekend! 

Along with the transmitter I desperately needed, I also received 3 boxes of sensors (12 total) and a new pink receiver with Share.  I don't have an iPhone though, nor does my husband, so I don't think the Share aspect will get used when I have to switch my old receiver for my new one.  I did ask for one without Share...I wonder why they still sent it? 

Regardless, I'm happy to be back in business!  The 2 hour warm up period just started so around 6pm I'll have readings again after 11 days.  Now to start packing up everything we'll need for our trip!

Last week my Dexcom gave me the low transmitter battery alert.  I quickly put in an order for a new one, but I'm still waiting for the diabetes supply company, my endo, and the insurance to process everything.  I'll also be getting a new receiver since my old one is out of warranty.  It's still going strong though so I'll keep using it until it dies.  I can't believe it's lasted me 2 years already with no problems!  :)  I've been really blessed, and I've done my best to take really good care of it.  Guess that means my hard work has paid off. 

I hope to have my new transmitter before we leave on vacation next weekend.  I really hate to be without it.  Thankfully, my low carb lifestyle means I don't have to worry as much about highs and lows all over the place.  I feel completely confident in my ability to keep my blood sugars stabilized.  I just like having the extra constant "vision" my Dexcom gives me.  It makes things so much easier.
