Yesterday, the FDA approved Dexcom Share, a charging cradle for its CGM that uses Bluetooth to send real-time blood glucose reading to smart phones. This is the first innovation that enables parents and caregivers to monitor blood glucose from afar. My son is excited because this will enable him to sleep over at a friend’s house, something he’s not been able to do since his diagnosis last year. The Dexcom Share also means we can finally ditch the baby monitor at night!
I continue to be amazed at how dedicated the medical and scientific research communities are to improving the lives of children with diabetes (cwd) and to finding a cure.
