Priorities

Comfort

  • Longest lasting sensor
  • Sensor needs to be changed by your doctor
  • Have to carry pens and pen needles
  • 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
  • Syringes and pens limit your ability to adjust insulin throughout the day
  • Easy to Use

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

  • Can use sensor trends for dose adjustment
  • More precise dosing than syringes
  • Fewer Fingersticks

  • Daily fingersticks needed to calibrate sensor
  • Privacy

  • Pens are low profile
  • Ability to see sugar on watch or phone
  • Sensor not movable on body
  • Wisdom

    Hear what others who use this device combo have to say

    My doctor asked me if I’d like to try it. I’ve always had a problem with nocturnal lows and my Eversense wakes me up so I can treat.

    Its helps tremendously with insulin dosing. I have cut down on my daily dose intake.

    The Eversense is easy because i don't have to insert anything under my skin - but its not easy because i have to go to the doctor to get it inserted every 3 months.

    Questions for your Doctor

    Can I try this before I commit to it?

    A lot of provider offices have sample devices you can touch and feel to get a sense of how they work. Some offices even have a trial device you can use for week to see how it works for you.
