Jennifer replied to JGM in SJ MI's discussion 'How do you use the square wave or dual wave for pizza?'
"It is a very YDMV type of thing (your diabetes may vary). I dual wave for things like pasta, pizza, etc. Pizza - I have narrowed it down to a 50/50 dual wave over 1 1/5 hours. It is a lot of trial and error and finding out what works best for you."

I see you've used Dexcom and the Minimed CGM... which one do you like better?

At 1:44pm on February 6, 2012, Bella said…

Hi, Jennifer. I saw your question about the alert limits set for Dexcom, good one! I also read many answers. My doctor told me to set it at 70 - 240. But I changed mine to 90-240 because at 70 I start to feel drowsy. Now I will change my high to 180-200 because it goes up faster.
