My Dexcom 7 plus arrived an hour ago and is charging up. I’m going to start using it later today. (I think!)
I’m excited but also nervous. I think the alarms are going to go off a lot, especially the high alert as I have been frightened of hypos for 20 years and always run high. Hope it doesn’t drive me bananas.
Never used a CGMS before.
Is it really necessary to wash my hands every time I calibrate, what if I can’t get to a sink?
Also, do I need to use alcohol wipes before inserting a sensor, I’ve never used them for pump sets?
I’m in the UK
