I have been a diabetic for 20 years. I am no longer in denial since I am insulin resistant. I am blessed to have a wife who monitors my Dexcom like a hawk and keeps me on track. I have used Splenda or Sucralose for years and have had no problems

  1. Thanks for sharing your story and experience with us. Sounds like your wife is a great support to you. How do you like using the Dexcom? I know many here would be interested to hear. Wishing you the best, Kelly, Type2diabetes.com Community Moderator

    1. I love it. It has taken me almost two years to get it. It is a real blessing not to have to poke my fingers any more

      1. thank you for sharing! I'm sure your fingers are very happy too. What was the process of getting the CGM like for you? I know others in the community have also had to fight really hard to get one. Best, Minel (Team Member)

    2. I use stevia and monk fruit sweeteners. I react to any other ones.

      1. Thanks for sharing! Glad you've found some that you are able to tolerate. Best, Kelly, Type2diabetes.com Community Moderator
