    Could not live without it nowadays.

    Mine was 4 when we started a year ago. Girl her so a little purse or Spibelt works for us most of the time. Or large pockets or a sewn in pocket for dresses now.

    SHH, i do look at the numbers and then prebolus or not, then 10 minutes later take a really number on meter. But I have had it for over a year now and know where I feel comfortble.

    We just started using it a month ago or so. Over all we love it. He gets poked less during the nights, and we can head off highs and lows before they become major issues. been a great tool.

    We love it. Have had no real problems from it like a few others.
    We get extended life from almost every sensor.

    There is a CGM section on this board where you will find lots of people using all 3 of the different systems. We love the Dexcom.

    We LOVE it! I couldn't imagine managing this disease without it. My ds started it when he was almost 4.

    We love it. We had a horrible start, and still she is more prone to sensor failures than most, but 3 of every 4 sensors works and lasts at least 9-10 days for her, the other one usually fails or errors continuously and dexcom replaces it. Couldn't live without it now!
