Read/know/not quite believe Dexcom calibration rules. I.e. 2x day = best result, only more if 20%/20 points off. But:
- seems like more calibration better but not better
- really no problem/not mind enter #s more often/no sweat
- difficult explain, just believe scientists
- almost impossible trust thing brain can’t grasp, e.g. top secret algorithm
And Bigfoot inclined ENTER BG whenever Dexcom exactly spot on. “Good for you!”/hearty encourage. Example: bed time VIQ 112, Dex 110. What harm pat on back? Refrain, but so much want recognize Dexcom job well done. Employee of month.
Would be easier follow calibration rule if understand. When investigate, quickly run into something re polynomials. Oh. Vast, vacant space head where that math belong. And graph even less familiar. And Gary Scheiner says really, really stick to 2x day. Therefore try very best just trust calibration rule. And go to sleep.
Hour later, AWAKE! No Dex buzz, just normal Bigfoot anxiety. Morning train Boston, meet Bigfoot Mom for Book of Mormon musical. Maybe kind of worried miss train? Also really into Netflix binge-watch The Killing—another perfect show for D-parent all-nighter. Ergo as soon as teeny bit conscious mind, begin sniff out opportunity watch The Killing. Even though know need sleep. Peek Dexcom: 110.
Think need glass water. Think maybe OK tiny peek The Killing. Mid Episode 8: Stonewalled, Dexy buzz. Different buzz from usual. ZZt-zzt-zzt-zzt! LOW UNDER 55. VIQ 86. Scroll Dex ENTER BG for consider calibrate. ENTER BG screen shows 39. Decide not calibrate. Decide Juicy Juice. Decide worry about so frequent rumors VIQ runs high. Decide little bit more The Killing. Realize now brain fully awake. Dex buzz normal buzz for normal LOW UNDER 85. Zzzzt-zzzt-zzt. Display BG#60. Juice working. More The Killing. Weird buzz again for LOW UNDER 55. Not calibrate, but go to calibration screen for see number, because main screen just LOW. Calibration screen: 39 again. VIQ 87.
So. This matter of Dexcom lag/juice effect not yet reach interstitial areas or—but wait shouldn’t 15g CHO juice create more lift than 86–>87 on VIQ? Need more juice or need more wait-and-see/The Killing?
ANSWER: more juice, more The Killing.
But when arrive upstairs Juicy Juice in hand, Dexcom 55 w. arrow up. That good news. Then 60 arrow up. Even better.
NEW ANSWER: The Killing Episode 9: Undertow, Juicy Juice on stand-by, no calibration.
