Re: [IP] Continous Blood Glucose Sensor



Hi,
I got the privilege of using the CGS earlier this year...The nurse
practitioner puts it in for you...not a problem,just another "wire" to deal
with. and for me, more thinking,because you have to put in blood sugars and
food,insulin and exercise...it really impressed me...it showed for one thing
that my BG monitor was right on target all the time..alot of little trouble
areas,like a small change in correction factors...all it all it really
helped...I have a great endo....I wouldn't trade him for anything...it's
well worth doing if you care about yourself and "fine tuning" rates and
such...GOOD LUCK!!!!!!
As a side note...I love this list have been here for 6 years...used to feel
so alone, nice to know that there are so many just like
me...thanks...appreciate you all....

Type 1,36 years...pumping 6 years and never,EVER want to go back to
injections!!!!!
Have a great day everyone!!!!!!
