"Nate just turned three in May of this year. He was diagnosed at 2 1/2 (October 2010) and we started the Dexcom in March because I suspected he was having moderate rises and falls in his bg levels, causing him to not feel his lows (since the rise and…"

"Dear Taterbugs Momma, thanks very much for you answer. The more I read, the more I am convinced that the Dexcom could be the right choice for him. I understand from other discussions on the site than your son has been on CGM+MDI for a few months…"

CGM for a 4 year old

Hi everyone! I am new here and really happy to have found such a caring community. We are considering a CGM for our 4 year old son, diagnosed at 3.
