"The 5k thing is funny. My son, wife, and I did a Turkey Trot. It was perfect because my wife can't keep up with him, but he can't keep up with me! So he was sandwiched between us! My son is funny about things. When he runs, he just takes…"

"If he doesn't want to wear the CGM during his practices, I would at least tell him to wear it and do some running with it, so you and him, can see his blood sugar patterns.. and maybe once he sees running with it for miles around his house, he…"

Joining the Track Team

My 11 YO T1D son is joining the middle school track team. Up until now, we have had sports covered real well because ... I coach all the sports. Now, he'll be having track practice 3-4 times a week, without our supervision. The challenge I face is trying to come up with a plan that the coaches (there are like 5 of them!) can understand and follow to supervise him - he's pretty independent with things, but does need some oversight and someone to look out for him and keep him safe. Practices are…See More

Range of transmitter

Considering the Dexcom for my 10 YO T1D son who is very active in team sports. I'm wondering how far of a range the transmitter has. For example, if I'm on the sideline of the soccer pitch and he's wearing the transmitter, how far away can he be for the handheld monitor to pick up the transmission? Also, if it drops signal because he's out of range, will it automatically re-link when he comes back in range?On a related note, within the house, is there a range? I'm thinking it would be good to…See More
