Ask Me Anything > For my beloved¬†brother

Hey there :) ..Does the sensor of the CGM annoy your child ? Prevent her from playing or anything like this..or caused any wound ?! Ummm and actually my lil brother is a type I diabetic and he's using the insulin pen the the glucose meter for monitoring !! What do you think ..does it better to use a pump and a CGM ?! Thanks and take care!

Sunshine, Arden never complains about her DexCom sensor. She plays softball very competitively and basketball, both with a great amount of vigor. There is a bit of a tiny bump when the sensor is removed (size of a pinhead were the sensor wire goes in) but it clears up in a few hours. After two years she doesn't have any scarring.

I think that the combination of an insulin pump and glucose monitor can help to remove a ton of stress from life and they aids greatly with A1c and overall daily control. Highly recommend! Any more question, please ask.

Thank you for reading,
