CGMs, continuous glucose monitors, are a relatively new technology... I tried MiniMed's version that connected with my pump and it didn't really do it for me. I LOVED the information that it gave me, but the calibrations and the fact that if I didn't calibrate at the exact right time was more work than that information was worth for me. (granted if I were to get pregnant I would slap that thing on in a heart beat.) But for right now, no thanks.
I am, however, very excited about this report from San Diego, CA...a new CGM system that is implantable is in the works and looking promising. Love the exciting news. jenn
