I've had my CGM just over 24 hours now! Knew I would still have to test but I think I will test less. Went running today and it was great, just kept my eye on it and when it started to take a nose dive took some glucostabs. Didn't have to actually test until I was done. I think it may be hard to keep it within the 5 ft range all the time. I had set my low at 70 and it kept going off all night. Even after I got up and got some juice it kept buzzing until it went above 70. I lowered it to 60 for tonight.
I have a question for everyone. I'm going snorkeling, is there someway to get the receiver water proofed or do I just put it up until I come back into the boat? I'd really like to keep it with me while I'm in the water so I can keep my eye on my BS. Any suggestions?
I've had my Dexcom for almost 3 weeks. I'm still learning the nuances, but it has already taught me more about my BG profile than I would have ever learned with fingersticks alone. Unfortunately, I have not weened myself off 10-15 tests a day yet. The CGM is great for telling me trends, but I don't trust it quite enough to make corrections based on what it's telling me so I'm constantly double checking it against my meter.
The only thing I really wish is that I'd known about this gadget earlier.
