Hi. I'm debating about starting on a CGM. I'm currently on a minimed pump, and have decent control (A1C is 6.6 on average).
I care about my health, and think that the CGM may help me tighten my control - getting closer to 6 or so. But I'm not completely convinced.
The biggest draw back is feeling "bionic" with 2 insertion sites on my body. I'm young - 25 - and dating. Explaining an insulin pump on the first few dates is hard enough! Let alone a CGM....
Ultimately, I want to feel like I did everything to leave as full & healthy a life as possible. My question for you all is: Is a CGM REALLY worth the con (the 2nd site)??
Also, if you have one, do you constantly find yourself looking at the #s/trends? I'm afraid I may look at it too much - and that wouldn't be positive to be constantly focused on the # every second.
