Continuous Glucose Monitor?????

Posted on December 12, 2008 at 9:00pm 8 Comments

Has anyone tried this thing?? its like a little needle they put in kind of near your belly button i guess, and it stays in for 72 hours and then they take it out and it shows a record of your glucose for all that time... or something?? im still quite confused about the whole thing but im supposed to be getting soon and im SO nervous!! probably because i dont understand it yet. HELP!!

Let me know if anyone has ANYTHING to say about it.
Thanks =]
