Besides, it's not like she's making me use the Ping remote meter for testing again - while I like my insulin pump, I can do without that chunky, clunky, fat snail of a meter. The iBGStar app provides a lot of meaningful information for me, and going back to life without it... well, I don't want to.
But what this does mean is that I now have one more thing to carry around everywhere; one more accessory sitting on my desk during my workday. They all have cases (because, hi, that's what I do), and while they don't match, it makes me feel slightly better about needing to have so many carry-on items.

meter crap, an extra pump site, a Humalog pen and needles; Tallygear case for the Dexcom G4
(disclosure: I was sent one free to try out); the bottom of my iBGStar phone case.

uhm....that's.....not how babies are made.
HAHAHA! that's hilarious!Delete
Kim, you have a lot of cool looking cases, I'm jealous.
Wait can you put your number into your ping? without testing on it? teach me your ways master.ReplyDelete
Indeed, my young Padawan. You have to go through the Bolus/ezBG screens and dial up to whatever. Do a 0.00 bolus. It'll remember the BG, according to my endo. Presto!Delete
Why not do the same thing on your pump and skip the meter altogether?ReplyDelete
Because most of the outfits I'm wearing right now render my pump not easily accessible. ::sad trombone::Delete
You are the organized to my messy! I love that you have all these cases! It's inspiring and makes me want to dabble in the organized world. Putting bgs in the pump seems like a pain but maybe it'll just become routine?ReplyDelete
So glad to see those two alcohol swabs in your arsenal! And here I thought I was the last remaining person who carries those things around (for set and sensor changes only -- not for regular fingersticks).ReplyDelete
I have skin prep and skin tac swabs! You're not alone!Delete
I love the cases, so organized :-)ReplyDelete
I like the fingerstick kickstand. :)ReplyDelete
Wow, that's a lot of stuff. I'm no longer feeling bad because I have to carry around a lot of crap in my pockets. You win.ReplyDelete
My son uses a swiss army sling bag.. a pop and candy.. meter strips pen and poker... gluc in side pocket. Sometimes for short trips he just has his cgm in one jeans pocket and a couple fun size skittles in the other and maybe a penReplyDelete
