Thanks Terry. I will seriously think about it. True that I can’t tell when I am high or low anymore, but i bet it has been close to 20 yrs since I lost that ability. Actually it has been since my A1Cs have been below 5.5, so maybe I should give the theory I mentioned some credence.
As long as I get down to 140 and usually lower within 2 hrs of eating, what difference does it make to know more info? I don’t eat any surprising foods.
Since I am a perfectionist, I am also afraid that I will be glued to the info the CGM gives me. I suppose it would be good to know when I go below 65. I think that will be the only reason to get one for me. I was recently on a hike on the mountain in Manzanita, when I ended up out of it on the path, because my glucose had suddenly dropped. I can count the times that has happened on one hand in 60 yrs. I am sure it would have been far easier on my husband if we could have avoided that.
Is there more than one unit available now? Should I try the Dexcom Seven Plus I own, or has the technology been greatly improved?
Thanks very much
