1. the elapsed time before a trial is commenced when no treatment is given to participants in the study
on the first night wearing the 670g and enlite sensor, i may have celebrated a little too much. we had dinner at an amazing charlottesville restaurant that i hope to return to on a subsequent visit -- the local. appetizers included a squash -apple soup, goat cheese salad, crispy shrimp, and lobster mac & cheese (this one i only had a bite of). for dinner, james had short ribs [braised with red wine and veal stock, served with mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, and pearl onions] and i had seared duck breast [served with butternut squash-bacon risotto, brussels sprouts and a cider and cranberry gastrique]. we shared blackberry cobbler for dessert and i may have slightly underestimated the carbs.
the study asks that i test my ketones anytime that my blood sugar goes above 300, and i started the run-in period off "right", apparently, because my blood sugar DID go over 300 that first night (and yes, i tested my ketones and they were fine). i've had to test my ketones two other times during the past two weeks. i suppose that's not as horrible as it could be, especially considering the amount of time i spent in the 300's as a teenager!
speaking of statistics, here are a few statistics for the past two weeks:
time in target range: 65%
time below range: 10%
time above range: 22%
total daily dose: 48.75 units
basal: 15 units (32%)
bolus: 33 units (68%)
carbs per day: 133g
sensor glucose average: 141
in my next post i'll talk about some first impressions of the 670g+enlite, as compared to my omnipod+dexcom.
