The three days I took off from the CGM were not great. My blood sugars were decent, I missed being able to look at my pump and see my blood sugar however. It is like checking your cellphone, you know it didn't ring or alert you of a text but you check just in case. The CGM is the same way, the pump didn't beep and I want to know why!!! What is my blood sugar, what way is it trending, can I go for a run or should I set a temp basal. I would love to count how many times I look at my pump in one day, it wouldn't surprise me if it was easily over 100 times.
I'm very happy to have the CGM back, Leanne and I have a lot going on this weekend and the CGM makes the diabetes side of life just a little easier. Diabetes technology is amazing, I don't know where I would be without my insulin pump or my CGM.
