Lisa, we are just starting to get to this point and I will say it is a bit scary! Example, we had a horrible storm here last night and my son is deathly afraid of storms. He checked his BG after and said "I'm 442 but Im going to wait that number out, I think it will come down on his own"! He is learning what some of his triggers are and what to do in some situations. I thought we would NEVER get to this point, and while he is just in the beginning stages of this, it is a start. I will say, the cgm does help him with his decision making.
