In c?

In conjunction with your meter. You still have to test with the meter and enter the readings into the Dexcom to calibrate every 12 hours or so. But they can sometimes be off. So you should never bolus/treat a low solely on the CGM reading. Always test first

That's a great question- I don't know if I should get one for my 20 year old daughter. She doesn't like to check her sugar.. Ugh...

It does not replace your better what so ever, you still check as many times as you would during the day but it gives you so much more control and shows what foods affect your blood sugar the most or if

Your dropping or rising in the night, also helps with how much insulin I take because if your double downing then you wouldn't take as much for your meal as you would if you were double rising!

We use it primarily to predict lows and to catch them at night. But you're right****... It was great when my son had testing
