Less than typical (A CGMS discussion).
At first glance, neither of us seem like your typical candidates for continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS). Well, definitely not me, as a type 2 on metformin. (It’s a love-hate relationship right now, emphasis on hate.) And while Greg has concerns over hypoglycemic episodes, he still manages his type 1 with multiple daily injections (MDI) and he still has little interest in a pump. I haven’t read of anyone’s experiences with a CGMS trial and MDI.
But everyone who wants to manage their diabetes effectively should have access to CGMS, regardless of type or treatment plan or health status. And I write about it in this month’s column over at dLife.
