Hello my FUD Loop people. I apologize for missing many of you, but I am tagging a few that I know for sure are using Loop.
Please feel free to add others who are currently using Loop…
Now the problem. A very troubling thing to see.
I set a zero basal in my profile for 7am-8am for this morning. I checked it and double-checked it, and triple checked it. Plain as day, 7am-8am, 0.0 units basal. I synchronized my pod. Again and again, just to make sure.
The night before - new basal rate has been set, pod is synched. All good, right?
Race day. The gun is at 7am.
I am going with open Loop. No phone with me during the race and no Dexcom. I am just using syringes and a BG meter.
The 7am-8am zero basal should work, because that is what my basal profile is set for. I checked it over and over, and the pod has been synched with the new basal profile.
I assume I will have zero basal for the race. That is all I need Loop to do - just honor the basal profile I have set!
Did I miss anything?!?!
So I was surprised to see a 45 on my BG meter right after I finished. Whuh?!?!
I wanted to check into it a bit, so I looked at my Apple Health data. And this is what I saw.
Hugely disappointing and surprising.
So as far as I can tell, from 7am-8am it did not give me zero basal, it just kept spitting out the 0.7 units, which happens to be the rate that was set for 5am-7am.
Did I miss anything?
As it stands, the only way I will ever know for sure that I have a zero basal with Loop is if I peel the pod off right before the gun. And I think that sucks.
I mean, I can do it that way. But I should not have to.
