Several days ago was at my diabetes educator's office for a workshop and encountered the Dexcom continuous meter. Reading the pamphlet and talking to the rep was very interesting (link to website: http://www.dexcom.com/products). I've been battling the extreme BG lows the past month, sometimes several times a day. I've lost 12 pounds too! Not doing anything different that I haven't before. Because funds are very tight I'm eating one meal a day, but checking my BG about 5 times a day. And it usually is reading normal and I figure "Why eat and mess this number up." The bummer is my insurance won't pay for it! I spent long periods in the past of not checking because I didn't bleed well, and before alternate sights it would take me a good 30 min. to get up the courage to stick my finger. This really could be a big help, especially now that it is becoming harder for me to tell when I have a BG low, has to be about low 50s for me to tell. Response anybody?
