So our 2.5 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. It’s been a scary week with ICU time and coming to grips with the lifelong nature of her disease. However, we’re very thankful for all the great technology that will hopefully make things easier for her!
That’s said. The hospital gave us a Dexcom G6. Works great if the primary caregiver is within Bluetooth range. But we are trying to figure out how to deal with having multiple caretakers (mom, dad, grandmas and day care) all be able to use follow app.
We are mostly iOS users. Right now the best method we can determine seems to be getting our daughter an iPhone, installing the G6 app on that, and inviting all her caretakers to use Follow app. However, keeping an iPhone on a 2.5yo at all times may be a bit challenging and am wondering if anyone has figured out a better method (Apple Watch or similar?) where the primary receiving and broadcasting device is always on her person?
Any other Dexcom G6 advice is also very much appreciated.
So grateful for JDRF, the forum, and all the community help!
