A few highlights Brynn talks about:

Wins & Fails

Colleen’s Win: I got 5 days out of a site. I didn’t do it on purpose, but since I’m using so little insulin right now I was able to go a lot longer than usual before changing it, and my numbers didn’t rise as much as they usually do when I go long on sites.

Jessie’s Fail: Jessie got her “schooling-at-home” schedule and thinks the school didn’t do a very good job. Long hours at a desk aren’t good for anyone!

Hack of the Week

The hack this week is to become friends with the nurses in your endocrinologist’s office if they have a nursing staff. When I went to my pediatric endocrinologist, there was a team of nurses that I got to know really well and I was always excited to see them. The nurses there made the visits more enjoyable.

Brynn O'Donnell, APN, joins us to talk about what nurses learn about diabetes in nursing school and what it’s like to treat T1D patients.
