I'm sure everyone out there who is using a CGM or CGMS, I'm not sure which is correct, I usually just say CGM but anyways this is just a perfect example of when you should never rely on what your DexCom or ANY continuous glucose monitoring system shows. It is meant to show trends and does an EXCELLENT job at doing just that.
I thought I was feeling alright but felt just a little sleepy so I remembered that before I started using my Dex I always checked whenever I felt a little unusual including feeling a little sleepy in the middle of the day just like I was at this very moment. So I pulled out my OmniPod PDM to check and WOW!!! I'd better get something to eat!
I just thought I should share this for anyone who is thinking of starting or is questioning their own DexCom. I LOVE mine and use it every day watching my trends and learning even better ways to control my sugars. After nearly 30 years as a T1 I am by no means an expert although I feel as I'm sure many of you out there do that sometimes I know more than my Endo does.
Just wanted to share. LOVING MY DEX!!!!
