CGM Alarms have the Worst Timing!

Posted on

I love my CGM. About 95% of the time it is accurate and it really helps to review trends and see where adjustments need to be made. I have become so dependent on it that I couldn’t imagine my life without it. With that being said, sometimes it REALLY annoys me.
