I started using a Dexcom 7 two weeks ago. I joined a study group at the U of Washington in April and was put into the control group, meaning I would wear the sensor for a week but the info was “blinded” to me. After six months, I am now wearing the sensor full time. I like what the information is showing me.
My concern is that I have struggled with hypo unawareness for many years. It is really noticable at night, so I’m greateful for the sensor but the alert is hard for my wife to keep hearing. She works full time, teaches 3rd grade, so she has a difficult time without enough sleep.
My question: Have any of you had a similar experience and if so how did you overcome it?
