"Gary IS one of us himself. (T1) He does have a serious bias for technology ("pump crazy" IMHO). But he might well well be able to help you. Have you tried any of the regional diabetic centers?"

"Yes! I'm already on that group and saw that you posted that on there today, thank you! We have an animas ping and a dexcom, and I was considering the nightscout or Dexcom share, which is why I joined that group."
