Hi, I'm new to the site and am most interested in hearing from people who have tried continuous glucose sensors with their pumps, especially the Medtronic brand. I just got my first kit and sensors and the very first one I used was not a good experience. I believe I understand all the basics and know when to calibrate and how to check things, etc. However, my readings were often 50% or more off from my glucose meter, both higher and lower.
In addition to this, I received several low blood sugar warnings during the first night but never felt any of them and, because of the disparity from my monitor in readings, I don't even know if they were accurate. I have the warning set to vibrate because I'm somewhat hard of hearing but evidently the vibrate warning (although it works great during the day) just won't get the job done when I'm asleep.
I'm going to try my second sensor in a few days. Any advice? Thanks.
