Priorities

Comfort

  • Longest lasting sensor
  • Sensor needs to be changed by your doctor
  • Have to carry inhaler and cartridges
  • Active Lifestyle

  • Because the sensor is under your skin, it won't get dislodged if it gets bumped
  • No way to adjust long acting insulin for higher activity on the fly
  • Avoiding Highs and Lows

  • Only sensor that vibrates on your skin to alert for high or low blood sugars; alerts work even when smart phone isn't close by
  • Inhalers are less precise than injections
  • Easy to Use

  • Sensor transmitter must be recharged every day
  • Inhalers are faster and easier to use than injections
  • Sensor changes far less often than other types, but your doctor must do it
  • Easy Insulin Dosing

  • Can use sensor trends for dose adjustment
  • Inhalers are less precise than injections
  • Fewer Fingersticks

  • Daily fingersticks needed to calibrate sensor
  • Privacy

  • Ability to see sugar on watch or phone
  • Sensor not movable on body
  • Inhalers are hideable when not in use
  • Wisdom

    Hear what others who use this device combo have to say

    Its useful to know what my blood sugar is before swimming. but I usually go low anyways.

    It doesn’t help to avoid fingersticks but it does let me know when I’m low without a finger stick. This is beneficial at night.

    The insertion of the Eversense is supposed to be painless.
