CGM
« on: October 05, 2015, 06:46:16 PM »
KRISTEN ASKED TO PUT ON HER CGM!!!!

This is huge.  She hates wearing it because she feels she can  trust her body.  Well, that time of the month screws this up.  She can't tell if she is rising or falling and therefore isn't catching lows until the lower 50s.  So she is wanting to put it on tonight!! 

Only problem is she really likes the Pamprin/Period medicines.  They ALL contain acetaminophen.  Pharmacist was no help.  My Uncle & cousin who are also pharmacists weren't really helpful either. And a nurse at her Endo's said I was stuck between a rock and a hard place.  Although she did come up with the same thing another friend on Facebook came up with.  And trying to create my own product using ibuprofen/naproxen.  We will see if it works.

I'm just so excited she wants to put the dang thing on!!!

I know each person's D is different, but Abby has taken Pamperin multi-symptom relief for years and we don't see a difference with Dexcom reading.

Great news!

When I was pregnant, I could only take acetaminophen.  Not sure if the Minimed is different with that, but I never saw a difference.

Ashleigh loves to use aleve or the store brand of it, for cramps during her period.  The only thing we hated to give up is her tylenol arthritis. And sometimes she takes it anyway, because nothing else seems to help if her back starts hurting.
