Re: [IP] Minimed CGMS Realtime or DexCom

I was taken by this picture because it showed a glucometer connected to 
the Dexcom CGM.  When I have been on CGM in the past, the calibration 
readings were done by manually entering the BG into the CGM at the time 
of testing.  While this allows more flexibility of meter use, the Dexcom 
system is definitely more slick.  Which way does the RT do the 
calibration BG inputs?
