Love/Hate Relationship with CGM
My CGM often hurts when I insert it, since the minimed needle is freakin gigantic and the insertion is pretty rickety in comparison to inserting my infusion set. I know that we're waiting for the technology to improve, so I deal. I also have soreness on the third day where I almost count down to...

Where is the best place to wear the sensor?
Getting my Dexcom tomorrow and just wondering where everyone like to wear it and if anyone has any tips, suggestions or advice for me?

Re: Advice on getting CGMS
Hi All, Not sure what everyone thinks of this, but I have a Dexcom 7 I'd be willing to sell. There's nothing wrong with it, I used it infrequently and was able to upgrade to a 7plus (due to reaching my out-of-pocket maximum last year). I believe I got it in 11/08 and used occasionally for 6 months...
