love to eat, but can’t put on enough weight to use the dexcom cgm properly. no body fat at all. i eat well, especially for a small person. i eat butter with spoonfuls of peanut butter. i eat the skin off the chicken…

anyone have any suggestions. i don’t mean to sound flip,as i know many Ds are over-weight. but this is my struggle. i have had little success using the dexcom cgm b/c i am so lean. i need to put on btw 5 to 10 pounds.

thanks, Daisy Mae
