CGM and intrameal blood glucose management
I've had type 2 diabetes forever, it seems like, and have been using CGM for a while now. As I read a recent article on mistakes made on the DTII journey, it dawned on me that I should be taking action on my between meals readings.
With CGM I can test as many times as I want (pain-free), and I do. My Dr. allows up to 50 units per day so I should be able to allocate some of them for those times I have an unexplained increase in BG. I also understand the risk of driving BG too low. Maybe the moderator will weigh in on this.
Have you ever used a continuous glucose monitor?
Were the financial costs of type 2 diabetes surprising to you?
