The best part is that I have options when it comes to a CGM. I have written numerous times about my love for Medtronic and the products that they make. They have a new CGM, the Enlite is Medtronics newest CGM and from the reviews I have read the product improves tremendously over the CGM that I have been using the past few years. I'm very comfortable with Medtronics product and familiarity has me leaning towards the Elite but I still want to tryout the newest Dexcom CGM. Dexcom in my opinion is the best CGM on the market, A lot of the people I know use the Dexcom and love everything about it. I have been tempted many time to make the switch but I've always been nervous about having to carry another device with me at all times. I'm running out of pockets, I have my cell phone, wallet and a the Dexcom if I go that route. That leaves me with one free pocket, for someone with sensory issues having to much in my pockets is very annoying. I hate large products in my pocket, I even I have my own key for Leannes car because I hate that she has so many keys and cards on her keychain. The Dexcom receiver is small and thin so I doubt it will cause any problems but it will be taking up another pocket.
I know that complaining about pocket space is very absurd, I honestly need to test drive the Dexcom if I can. I need to step out of my comfort zone and explore other options, tomorrow I will be making a few phone calls and exploring my options. I honestly miss my CGM, I need to fix this problem and get back to checking my pump or Dexcom every five minutes to see my blood sugar!!
