Episode 8: The 640G Without SmartGuard

Welcome back!

This week's photos come courtesy of a couple of weeks a go when on the way to work a stunning sunrise over Ingleborough was simultaneously replicated on my CGM graph!

Just a short written post this week as most of the detail is covered in the video blog below.

This week I've been looking at the day to day usage of the pump and meter. As I discussed in Episode 1 there are lots of cool features but at the end of the day it's the simple stuff that's important. So I've looked at the Contour Next Link 2.4 Meter, how you give insulin for food (bolus) and also set your background insulin (basal) levels.

Look out for Martha's blood glucose estimating skills. Maybe I can market a MGM (Martha Glucose Monitor)????

Apologies for the indulgence of biscuit eating but in the interests of a proper test we needed some nice food to bolus to!

Thanks for watching and please leave your comments and feedback. These are always welcomed along with requests about what to feature next.

Take care,
