It seems that a lot of you use CGMs. What do you think? Are they useful? Too much information? How do you feel about having two insertion sites on your body (if you use a pump as well)? Any other advice?
I have been toying with the idea of a CGM for a while. My blood sugars vary....sometimes they seem to be right in target, but then I also have days when they are all over the place. I asked a CDE about it once, and she basically told me that CGMs give you a lot of information and some people become overwhelmed with this information. I wasn't quite sure what to make of that... I'm also not sure about having another machine attached to me. I love my pump because of the flexibility it affords me that injections do not. But I *hate* having a little machine attached to me 24/7.... a constant reminder. I mentioned in a another post that my relationship with my pump is very love/hate. ha.
Anyway. Any insights you have are greatly appreciated!
