6 weeks ago I took the plunge and began using the Dexcom G6 CGM. I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 31 years but in the last 3 years have become very physically active and exercise daily. The benefit was the massive weight loss but the downside was loss of control of my glucose levels. I cut my insulin use in half (Novolog and Lantus) but the hypoglycemic reactions could get quite dangerous. The last 6 weeks on the CGM have been amazing. I have learned much about my condition that I never before knew!
One thing I am challenged with is the response time I have to using glucose tablets when my glucose levels go low. I find that it might take 7 minutes before I see my glucose respond. Does anybody know a good resource I could use to learn more about glucose response times for hypoglycemic reactions?
