My new Dexcom G4 continuous glucose monitor arrived, and I am one happy gal! Put the sensor on Monday night… And it has ALREADY prevented me from having two bad middle-of-the-night low blood sugars. Phew! Maybe I’ll get my fiance off of my back about those bad lows! The g4 system is quite a bit… Continue reading Dexcom Seven Plus Vs. G4
