I finally received my medical box today. hopefully it will be my dexcom system because pricking my hand has become annoying. but I will say that the instruction book that came with my new tester had Alternative Testing Sites (ATS) so I stopped poking my fingers and switched to my palms and that was better for me. so when I get home I will be doing an update soooo yeah fingers crossed 😬

      I had to get the extra seal stickers for the dexcom because I wanted to make sure it didn't come out unless I took it out. The only thing about the dexcom that I did for the first time, was rub pass it while in the shower and the transmitter had unlocked from the sensor. Thankfully I just had to press it back in place until it clicked 😊

      I'm on the freestyle libre system and I absolutely love it

        @Aperellime the freestyle libre didn't agree with me. It kept falling out after I would sweat a lot from walking or exercising. But the dexcom for me is lower and I move around better with knowing my clothes secure it.

          @LotusFlower I don't seat much cuz I have limited mobility but the only problem I have with mine is when I hit it and pull it out lol
