Hi! My daughter was diagnosed with T1D a year and a half ago, she’s now 7. We started the Dexcom G6 a few days ago (it just came out in Canada last week). This is her first CGM. I have a few questions!
She has to have her phone within range (6 metres) to get readings. This is a big deal when you’re seven to remember to take your phone with you everywhere you go. Any suggestions for how to make this easier? We have a cute bag she’s been carrying the phone in but realistically that’s not going to happen 24/7. Any suggestions on cute holsters that clip to pants as I haven’t come across any.
SPORTS! Chloe is super active, she plays soccer, volleyball, horseback rides and swims. Obviously she won’t have her phone on her swimming but I’d also prefer she didn’t have it on during games and riding. If her phone is out of range, she doesn’t get any readings and our phones (which have the app) aren’t getting reading either, just lost signal alerts. Is there a way to get around this?
I appreciate any advice, it’s been an overwhelming few days and she didn’t want to go to school this morning
