So, I’m looking into the possibility of getting a CGM. I don’t mind giving myself injections, but I would like to be able to have something alert me when I’m going too low or too high. I was recommended the Dexcom 7 or the Navigator. I am totally new to any type of diabetic equipment - let alone the disease. I was use to seeing my mom test and give herself shots, so I was ok with doing that when I was diagnosed with T1. However, now that I have a toddler and we are alone for most of the day together - I would like something to alert me that I’m going low. If it wasn’t for my neighbor waking me up one time, I don’t know if I would have woken up from my low. I woke up and felt horrible, tested, and I was in the low 40’s - scary thing was - I had no idea I was dropping that fast. Scary stuff.
So bottom line - I’m praying about it and taking suggestions and comments.
Thanks for listening.
