My name is Tricia Moore.
I have been a type 1 diabetic for almost 20 years now, and a registered nurse for about 3 years. I have used 5 different kinds of insulin pumps, 2 different CGMs, and more glucometers and insulins that I can remember.
I am an aspiring CDE but currently work in a hospital on a mother / baby unit.
None of the information, tips, etc. here are to be taken as medical advice. While I am a registered nurse, and have personal and professional diabetes experience, you should always consult with your physician (or the parents and / or physician of the child with diabetes you are caring for).
Any advice given on this website is from my own personal experience and experiences of those I know who are living with diabetes.
PLEASE consult your physician before following any of the advice / guidelines posted on this page. Every situation is different so what I recommend on here, what has worked for me and for others, may not work in your case.
