I have a lot of really, really bad lows. I have seizures a few times a week, and the paramedics and I are on a first name basis (I've seen them 25 times in less than a year, and I live alone, so those are times when I'm out in public and get low). This happens because I give myself too much insulin. I just do; I know, I need to stop, but, until I do, I keep having severe lows.
I called my insurance company, and they said they might cover a CGM for me. First, they need me to tell them which one I want. So, I'm asking you guys, is there a CGM that's really, really good with alerting for lows? I have a 5 year old MM pump, but don't currently use it. My doctor won't let me get a new one until I get my a1c above 5.5, so I don't need to worry about pump/cgm communication.
But, please, if you have any experience with CGM and lows, let me know. Is there any that really helps or are they about the same? Thanks, guys!
