Random thoughts on coronavirus and diabetes

I was looking at the very steep upward COVID-19 data curves and felt an immediate urge like I needed to take action right that second. Obviously the numbers are alarming in their own right but I started to wonder if my reaction is a little more than that.

Then I realized it’s almost a Pavlovian reaction to seeing a steep line graph. I guess I have been primed to hyperreact to graphs of a certain shape thanks to years of managing Samson’s diabetes.

Anyone else have that same reaction?

Was just thinking something very similar today. You’re not alone, both still make me cringe.

Wouldn’t it be cool if we could “community-spread” our BG spikes!

And the talk of V shaped vs U shaped constantly reminds me of my dexcom!
