Hi Miss,

I have tried all three of the CGMS systems on the market. Please see my latest review of the Navigator here:

But before you start comparison shopping, you should probably learn some basics about using a CGMS / state of the technology. Here is a great primer article:

All the best,

I read through your reviews of the three CGMS. I looked into this when I got the Paradigm Insulin pump, but found the monthly costs were way beyond my budget. My husband and I have talked about trying to make sure that I have one if/when we decide to try and have children to ensure better control through the hormones. Thanks for the info.

My pleasure. Unfortunately, I just found out I'm allergic to the medical adhesives they use:

This just really sucks. * sigh *

That's not fun at all, and now it has me worried. My pump sites sometimes look so irritated after I remove the adhesive.. it fades after a few days, so I haven't worried to much about it. I hope it doesn't get worse… and I hope the same for you.
