I'm wondering if I should call and ask for a script for EMLA cream before we get the dexcom. When she did the CGMS trial (minimed) at the endo's office, it did hurt. But we were told by the CDE (who also has type 1) that the dexcom needle / probe are much shorter / smaller than the iPro. She doesn't use EMLA for insets and says they don't really hurt more than an injection. Do you find it helpful or does it make much of a difference?
