Hey, I have been on a MM CGM since the middle of May and have become slightly obsessed with checking my blood. I know checking my blood more often is not in itself a bad thing, but sometimes I feel like it is not necessary. Sometimes it is, like when I am making sure my blood sugar is stable for a calibration. But on top of that I am constantly looking at my sensor readings and checking my blood to see if it is accurate. It is frustrating because I feel that if I wasn’t using a CGM and checked my blood every hour I would greatly improve my A1c and not spend all the extra time and money on the CGM.
Anyone else do this? Any tips on how I can not be so caught up in checking my blood? Or is checking my blood this much even though I’m on the CGM okay?
