It has been over one week of using my “toy” (a Constant Glucose Monitor) and I am still just as much in love with it as I was that first day. This CGM has given me invaluable insight into what my body is doing. I can actually see the glucose / cortisol relationship with real numbers! I plan on continuing to publish my findings on this blog so that others can apply them in their own life (with the support of their own medical team). I am also in awe of the improvement in the technology. Keep in mind that this isn’t the first time I have had to test my blood glucose. When we thought I had hypoglycemia, I would regularly test my sugars in the mid to late 90’s. Those finger pricks required so much blood! Nor is this the first time I have used a Constant Glucose Monitor. In 2005, I was hooked up to a massive brick in order to help determine if this was true hypoglycemia or if it was another medical condition (Spoiler: It was Addison’s Disease). But while I am over here singing the praises of this CGM, I must also make note of some of the limitations. Below are three things that I have noticed after wearing my Constant Glucose Monitor for a little over one week.
