    Honestly I can’t feel the dexcom anymore. I actually forgot where it was the other day!

    Dexcom G6 has alarms you set high and low, which tell you before it is in dire need for action. Also will wake you up! The pump will also alert you when it is time to change. One thing I am still trying to figure out is a system for rotating sites. The Dexcom changes every 10 days while the pump is every 3.

    I thought I wouldn’t like it having something on me 24/7. But I was wrong! Now I know at any time where my levels are just by looking at my phone!

    Questions for your Doctor

    How does a smart system work?

    Automated insulin delivery systems usually have three parts: a continuous glucose monitor (CGM), an insulin pump, and an algorithm, which is the brain. It makes many dosing decisions for you with less button pushing. The system senses your blood sugar level and adjusts insulin delivery automatically.

    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.
