Patricia explains what diabetes related device she has with her and why it is beeping.
It sometimes will alarm and buzz when it… I’ve got it set for vibrate because I don’t often hear the noise of it and it’s just a little, you know, it’s telling me right now I need to do my blood glucose and that I need to check that, and so, it will remind me and tell me those things. So, it’s one of those things that gives you a lot of good information.
You can do computer graphing and correlation and when you take that information to your doctor, your doctor can look at it and say, “Well gee, you’re doing really well,” or “I think you need to fine tune this a little bit and I think we need to improve this sequence here.”
Finding a good healthcare team, diabetes education team to work with is critical. Finding good support system is also important; that’s something that I found that’s been a big help over the years.
