When my daughter Arden was first diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes two weeks after her second birthday, we were overwhelmed. Thoughts like, “Is Arden going to be healthy?” or “Will she be able to do everything that her peers can?” constantly raced through our minds. For parents of children with diabetes, you understand that activities, meals and snacks during the day have the potential to drastically alter your child’s glucose levels at night. As such, for many years, we had many sleepless nights trying to monitor Arden’s glucose levels to make sure they never got too high or too low.
Everything is moving faster in diabetes technology. I began looking into the Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System when I heard about it from an online friend whose child was using the System. I was absolutely amazed and excited about the possibility of being able to successfully help my daughter manage her glucose levels. We really like that it’s futuristic, and that I worry less and sleep more which makes life much more peaceful in our home. The Dexcom CGM System has definitely taken my stress levels down. I can say now that I have little fear of Arden’s lows because we can see them coming. I no longer worry about what will happen when Arden isn’t with me, because I can see what is happening right on my compatible smart device.
