Today’s Diabetes Month Photo-A-Day prompt is “check.”  And seeing how different my Dexcom result is from my meter proves why it’s still important for me to check my blood sugar instead of relying on the information from my CGM.  (Also, you can’t see the “blood drop” request for calibration because the overhead light flushed it out, but this Dexcom sensor was four hours overdue for a meter check.)

Diabetes is a science experiment, with imperfect tools, an imperfect host, and a busted up pancreas.  But we keep rockin’.
