The Dexcom monitor is a type of glucose monitor that constantly monitors the rise and fall of your blood sugar. It is able to do this through a receiver that is attached to your stomach, kind of like the insulin pump. However, it does not measure your actual blood sugar, rather it measures your blood sugar by measuring your body fluid. If you don't already use it, I highly recommend it. You still have to prick your fingers to check your blood sugar, but with the Dexcom you can do it less.
