where people touched by diabetes help each other.

He has the Ommnipad pump and I'm not so worried about monitoring him during the day since he has enough eyes watching him when he's awake. The nights on the other hand are restless for me.

My daughter uses Dexcom. I love that thing. It's my saving grace and I sleep so much better at night. Before we got her the CGM I never slept

does the Dexcom has something you can have in your room to hear the alarm or is it has to be next to the child?

The child wears the sensor and you can keep the receiver in your room so you can hear the alarm if it goes off

Dexcom is a great tool. But more important is to make sure your sons basal settings are correct so that he holds steady overnight.

the dexcom is great. the newest one has share technology. if you have an iPhone you can use it as a receiver. you would be able to monitor him wherever you are. I'm not sure if there's an android app.
