The Guardian Speaks
I slip the little beauty off my belt to see what all the ruckus is about. A high BG alarm! My first alarm! It really works!!! I’ve been hooked up less than eight hours and it’s already intercepted a problem!
BG 202, she tells me. I confirm with a finger stick using the CoZmonitor. It calls the game at 209. Damn, that’s really good. They are very, very close. Medtronic sure has a winner with this system! I take a 0.55 unit correction, reduced for IOB (insulin on board--Cozmo speak). I set the snooze alarm for one hour. A snooze alarm? you ask. Yes, another clever gift from the Medtronic engineers. There is snooze alarm option on high BGs. Why? Well, it takes time to fix a high. You don’t want your Guardian squawking at you every five minutes while you are trying to come back down, now do you?
