My CGM Tape Issues
Well everyone, I am hooked back up to my CGM, and with brand new tape! I decided to use the Tegaderm HP tape that came in the package that Minimed sent me yesterday. I used the Skin Prep and the IV prep hoping that the tape would stick.
This is what it looks like now:
ISN'T WORKING!!! As you can see the tape is already coming off on the left and also there is dried up blood underneath. I am not sure if I can help that from happening though, unless I am injecting wrong or something. I will be going to see my CDE on Wednesday to see if she can help me out a bit more to get the best out of my CGM use, without me wanting to throw it out the window maybe?
I really want to make this work, I think this is just a little bump in the road that I must get over and hopefully it does not make me get a flat tire! haha.
I have to say though it has been working pretty great today. The bells... they are a ringin'. It has been notifying me of my highs which have pretty much been all day. I have been correcting all day.
But that is because umm..
::ALERT, Alert this is going to be TMI::
I am going to be having my monthly friend over for a visit soon if ya catch my drift. So, I tend to run a bit higher prior to her actual visit. (god, I hope my dad, and his friends didn't just read that! HI DAD, AND FRIENDS UGH!)
Anyway, I will let you all know how my CDE visit goes on Wednesday and if she has any tips and tricks to make the tape stay put.
To be continued...
