I have been with Medtronic/Minimed right from the start, over 25 years ago when I got my first pump. I have been using the cgm since Aug 2009. It has always varied so much for me, not being able to alert me to highs and lows quick enough. Example, system told me I was 168 with 1 down arrow, I felt awful, very confused etc, did a finger stick and meter said I was 36, which was pretty accurate as I was in quite an insulin reaction.
My Dr has suggested I try the Dexcom system. I have received it and am ready to start, but am heistant. It all sounds good, I’m just wishing it could “talk” with my pump like what I am used to now.
Please give me your pro and cons. Do you Love it?
Has anyone else switched from Medtronic to Dexcom?
IS it more accurate?
