My son just started on the newest CGM this week. Somewhere along the way, I interpreted the CGM as a monitor I could count on most the time (in place of using a meter all day long.) We do calibrate the CGM twice per day (the readings have been spot on with our meter) and of course, if anything seemed "off" we would double check with the meter. However, I was shocked today our dr's office told us he has to use his meter just as much as he was before (8 times per day!) So what really is the point of wearing this thing??? It is working fine, and we haven't had a reading yet that wasn't within 10 points of the meter. So I guess, if he is feeling fine, why can't we count on the CGM when the new model has 87% accuracy. I feel like it is so redundant to check with a meter every few hours when he's wearing it. Also, he HATES wearing it, and the only way I have been able to bribe him to wear it (he's 11) is telling him he doesn't need to check himself with the meter but just here and there! But I guess I dreamed that up on my own. Ugghhhhh very frustrated to learn this or is my doctor's office exaggerating to cover their behinds in case something wasn't accurate?
