Tired of my CGM hanging and i hate adhesives!
I have a CGM and really like it, but i HATE wearing the adhesives over it. The CGM is so small and once i put the adhesive over it, it looks like I just had surgery.

Holding the CGM in place
Hey all, I've been on my CGM for about a month or so and I use the Minimed Revel system.

Where do you wear your pump/sensor?
I have only seen a few other people wear their pump clipped to a belt or pocket. Since I started using a pump in 2002 and a CGM last fall, I've always clipped them to my belt. I am curious about how others wear your devices and if you are ever asked "...what is THAT?"

Another day with the cgms
So my cgm ended late last night, and I decided to charge it up overnight so I wouldn't have to be awake for hours trying to get it calibrated before bedtime. Here's been my day so far. I got up at 9 and checked my blood sugar. It was a little high, but I knew if I corrected it, I'd have to...
