I know MiniMed CGMs are known for their quirks and inaccuracies. However, I’ve gotten up one too many times in the middle of the night to find out that my sugars aren’t what my CGM says they are.
Last night was no exception. By the 4th wake up call and checks to discover that my sugars were safely in the 80s, I gave up listening to my CGM. I even restarted it because it said I had a double arrows down to 56 when I was actually 102. I just wanted sleep, damnit.
At around 5:30 am, I got another low alarm. This time for about a 74 mg/dl. Fine. Whatever… I’m sure I’m okay and 70 is actually an ideal fasting blood sugar for pre-pregnancy prep. So I continued to sleep until my alarm went off at 6:15. But man, I was hungry.
Woke up to a blood sugar of 56 mg/dl.
Oh… I see how it is. <sigh> This is what I was afraid of.
