Coping without the Navigator

My life is returning to normal somewhat since I've been without the Navigator again. I don't have to worry about keeping the monitor within range at all times, or be careful not to inadvertently scrape the sensor off my belly.

On the other hand, I really miss having that graph of my blood sugar over time. It's so amazing to see the curve of my blood sugar as food and insulin take effect!

I do seem to have found the correct nightly dose of Lantus, however, as my sugars are easier to control, more often in the normal range, and are much more manageable in the mornings when I get up. Also, as I was hoping would happen, my week with the Navigator has inspired me to check my blood sugar a little more frequently, and take a little better control of my diabetes. Amazing what just a week of using a continuous glucose monitor has done for my understanding of my diabetes!
