Re: [IPk] Medtronic CGM



Hi Carmel,

Ibm finding the same. Overnight the pump suspends too soon as the sensor
reads too low, often by two mmol or more. Ibve tried drinking more
overnight to ensure Ibm not dehydrating, but that just means more disturbed
nights.

The Dexcom and Libre sensors seemed better than the guardian.

Regards,

Tom
