I was wondering how many times a day everyone calibrates their Dexcom with a fingerstick. I find I do it more often when the reading are not accurate. Is this the correct thing to do or is it making it worse?
Most days I throw in an extra calibration or two (beyond the minimum). NB, if the fingerstick is significantly higher than the Dex I will re-check the fingerstick before I enter it as a calibration. Too often over the years I have gotten false "high" results with my One Touch.
I calibrate before breakfast, dinner, and at bedtime.
Have not had a serious low sugar event since I began almost two years ago.
This is a great change for me because these events were way to frequent previously due to my attempts to keep glucose lavels normal.
