Thank you

Glad to see unblinded option, which prior versions lacked. Hope the docs use it!

Oh wow that reminds me of my first cgm for the purpose of dosing my basal insulin. It was a large box twice the size of an insulin pump with a thick stiff cable to a sensor on my arm. No read outs no way to see it. It would buzz every 10 min when testing. It would alarm all the time but gave you no idea what it wanted. Near impossible to shower.

When my endo suggested cgm the first time, I said no way I’m doing that. Cause that was my only experience.
Why can’t the endo just have a regular g6 system to loan out? I don’t see a reason for it being blind or for it being different at all.
