Okay… my clinical trial is underway! This is the trial I wrote about around a month ago.
This past weekend, I received my notice and started wearing the Dexcom™ G4 provided to me for the study. The first week, I’ll be responding to a survey, but other than that, not much to report at this time. Except that insertion of the Dexcom™ was remarkably easy and nice. The receiver is easy to use. I’ll probably do some sort of product review later on. For now, I’m just saying… all CGMs should be like this.
Of course, I have to get used to having one more robot part attached to me around the clock. And I have to actually remember that said robot part is actually attached, so I don’t rip it out putting on my shirt or taking it off. But this is what I signed up for, so if I can just keep my eyes off of the receiver (‘cause I’m obsessive-compulsive like that), I’ll be okay.
More to come as the study continues.
Speaking of surveys, April over at Nerdy April’s Space Adventures (which is about the coolest blog name ever) is working on her grad school capstone project. The title of her project is… wait for it…
Evaluating the Feasibility and Safety of Type 1 Diabetic Astronauts.
Hope your week is blasting off to a high-flying start!
