Psst… CGM. We need a break.
My CGM and I are not on speaking terms right now. I have been wearing a Minimed CGM for nearly 5 months and I have referred to it as a Love/Hate relationship. I love that my overnight levels have been MUCH better and I love that I can glance at my pump a million times a day to see what my BG level is…. or isn’t which brings me to the hate part. I hate how unreliable it is and how inaccurate it is. I also hate changing the site and having another thing stuck to my body 24/7.
Yesterday I put in a new sensor and calibrated. Tested at 185. I was doing some work outside and was trending low. I came in to eat lunch and soon after my CGM says I am under 40. No, I’m friggin not. I tested at 132. Next comes the always enjoyable CAL ERROR. I re-tested, entered 132 again which led to another CAL ERROR and then a SENSOR FAILURE. Awesome.
It’s not me. It’s you.
We are on a break.
