Yesterday Dexcom #2 display crossed off martini glass hours at time, Bigfoot call Dexcom ask for tips, Dexcom determine replacement mandatory. But this one’s only like, one week old! Dexcom insist must replace because too much crossed off martini = dud. Unless, are you trying to use it right near a router? (What’s a router?) Where your internet is hooked up in your house… (No, that’s in the basement, but he may have been playing with my husband’s phone when it stopped…) That shouldn’t make a difference.
Meanwhile, today at beach Dexcom #2 come back to life. Smashingly so. Wish keep forever.
Meanwhile at beach…TrialNet call schedule confirmatory OGTT. Person so kind, test subject not fill w. dread, only fill w. curiosity. Maybe so full curiosity, curiosity juice spill from every orifice & test subject act kind of weird. Even so, no dread.
TrialNet person instruct Bigfoot make sure eat 100 – 150+ g CHO three days before next OGTT. This train pancreas correct self before wreck self. If too low carb before OGTT, laboratory syrup drink startle pancreas, pancreas maybe confused/unable manufacture snappy reply. Pancreas notice sugar syrup enter body just stutter Oh yeah? Oh yeah? Well, you know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna, I’m gonna, I’m gonna, I ought to, I ought to, you better watch out, you, you, you, oh yeah? then BOOM: subject fail test.
After phone w. kind TrialNet person, consider: maybe ate low carb? Squint into past. Remember day before test Bigfoot eat sweet potato fries + tuna melt, also cookie @ Flour, also coffee cabinet, also (kale) smoothie w. one ton pineapple, also giant popcorn during The Way, Way Back; day before include peanut butter cups crumbled into bowl topped with cap peanut butter frozen yogurt & one-ton pineapple (kale) smoothie, beer, probably other major carbs too.
So wait more lab results, autoantibodies, c-peptide, maybe other things. Meanwhile, seriously. Bigfoot A1C = 4.7. That = avg. 88 mg/dL. Puzzle.
Maybe A1C OK because normal life Bigfoot not drink sugar syrup. Maybe OGTT should be: person fast. Eat normal food. Measure BG. If BG OK post normal food, person OK.
Must remember point of TrialNet is not diagnose individual person w. imaginary diabetes, point is science.
