Aaarrrrr....I just saw "Pirates of the Caribbean" last night so I'm feeling a little dramatic. My feelings on the movie (in case you were wondering), unfortunately, are a bit on the tepid side.
Well, my experience with Minimed's CGMS® System Gold™ (sic) has been cut short.
I was helping a friend move this morning, and all I can say is this: IV3000 prep tape sucks. My sweating actually repelled the tape from my skin with enough gusto to pull the glucose sensor more than half-way out.
At least I got two full days worth of data collected (hopefully). It's a bummer though that I won't get to find out what 2 slices of pizza after a couple hours of sweating and moving boxes does to my blood sugar. That was some information I was looking forward to getting out of this here little experiment.
Oh well. Guess I'll have to wait until I get hooked up with a real CGM system (which I'm sure will happen one day, though I have no idea when).
