Sensor eighty-two
Meter, five twenty-seven
Which should I believe?

(Sadly, the meter is correct)

ETA: WTF? Even after entering the meter reading and eating lunch, the sensor is still alarming and telling me I am 80. And of COURSE, I forgot to grab that extra bottle of strips before I left the house today and am now all out…

  1. OK, so it must have been yesterday. Swear. Blood sugar skyrocketed for no reason – hit 400 at work and spent the evening dropping back from 400 to 72. I knew any sensor would have just thrown up its electronic hands and said: “You’re on your own.”

    You better now?

  2. Oy.

  3. yowza! I hope you’re doing better today! I have off days with my sensor too, I’m taking a break from it for a few days, the skin on my stomach needs it. That IV prep tape kills me.

  4. That happened to me once in the opposite direction — meter said 62 or something lowish and sensor was near 200. It kept asking me to calibrate like it didn’t believe me.

  5. Loved that!

  6. Technology, ugh! Too bad we don’t just have built in digital readings for stuff like that!

  7. I apologize for going WAY off topic here, but I wanted to let you guys know about my new column on sex and diabetes on Diabetes Health.com. I’m writing it with my partner Aisha. It’s good. The first column is at

    The second column is at http://www.diabeteshealth.com/read/2009/05/11/6192/sex-and-diabetes. Let me know how you like them and what could make them better.

    Carry on…
