"Umm, Lizmari, I can't see how anyone thinks insulin is for treating lows. How you come across anyone with that position (post 1982) is, honestly, beyond me. It isn't even funny. If you do, indeed, come across such types you should'nt…"

"Control of my blood sugars has always been an issue, which led my good doc to ask for me to get the CGM. However, I am also a girl. With massive hormonal changes monthly. For at least the next 10 years. And I do not envy any doctor that has to deal…"

"The CGM is a real boon. I got hooked up with the Dexcom about 4 months ago. It's a very helpful tool. You can't always take the BG as gospel, but the ability to see which direction your glucose is going is very helpful. My control…"

Dexcom CGM

I am a Kaiser patient with a remarkable doc who finally suggested I try CGM this past month. I was hooked up this past thursday and will go in this coming thursday to have it removed but have seen HUGE changes in myself and hopefully blood sugars/work as well.  I am probably going to buy one of these machines for myself as well as a new blood meter, too.  I just wanted to put it out there as I know I am not alone.  People are looking for help with this disease.  I am open to whatever.  I will…See More
