    What kind of CGM do you have that involves a row of needles being under your skin? My CGM is just one thin filament under the skin, there is a needle to introduce it but that does not stay under the skin. I have never heard of a cgm that involves a row of needles though. Is it a new one?

    Wow, what is the make/name of the CGM? Is it more accurate than british ones because it uses blood not interstitial fluid like the UK ones? Mine has a 5-10 minute lag behind fingerstick readings as it reads interstitial fluid not blood
