Love the CGM been wearing it for about 3 weeks now. for thje most part it is about 30 points higher than the finger stick. but i love being able to see my trends on the graph, it will be a big help when i see the Endo the 17th. The IV3000 Tape is a joke it is to small to grab enough skin to hold on to ( 2 3/4 x 2 7/8 ). Keep in mind I am very active and I climb under cars and tend to get greasy and sweat alot. So the tape may work fine for others..... Now trying to find the best spot to put it. I tried the outside of the thigh, that lasted about 2 days and pulled it out. and had to put in another one, then i tried the back of the arm and made it 4 days and reached behind the chair and pulled it out ( each was covered with the IV3000 tape) Thinking about trying a wide ace bandage and cutting it to fit my arm or leg and see how that works.......Now for the ANGLE of the inserter, I have been using the 45 degree and it works ok but is uncomfortable for about a day and a half and somewhat sore. I have not tried the 60 degree yet. Which do you prefer as far as less uncomfortable? I am a small framed guy not much meat on the bones lol.... 6 foot 140 lbs now.
I had a 63 Falcon Futura Black with red leather bucket seats. If I recall it had a 2 speed automatic transmission. That tranny was not one of Fords better ideas:)
This one is red on red covertible whit top bucket seats 170 engine with factory 4 speed all Original. still has the 13 inch wheels LOL man are those small
Tegaderm is the best adhesive - cover the whole thing. I have used the CGM for several years no and I am lost without it. I insert the sensor at about 60-90 degrees. The inserter kind of "stands up on its feet". I think most type 1's tend to have not much meat on their bones....so I use the "love handle" area. I honestly think the CGM is not so much for telling what the exact number is but the RATE you are falling or climbing. I am just amazed at how quick it changes. I have very, very rarely had the graph "flat-line". I cannot believe in a short period of time your BG's change so much. By the way I have had type 1 for 58 years and you can "teach an old dog new tricks".Sheila
