Diabetes mellitus includes several types beyond type 1: there's type 2 diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes mellitus, latent-autoimmune - and even more! Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with a type of diabetes mellitus other than type 1? Please select all that apply.
My diabetes educator can look at my results, but she hasn’t ever called me. I don’t share with anyone. If I ever have a bad low where I need outside assistance or pass out, I’ll start sharing. Been doing this sixty plus years, hasn’t happened yet…..
I use LIbre 2 reader and cannot share alerts. Actually neither of us can get the Libre 2 app on our cell phones. Would switch to Libre 3 and replace phones but Medicare doesn’t cover the Libre 3 sensor(claimed to be more accurate) at this time.
My husband also receives rapid rise and rapid drop. I will sometimes get a text asking if I am ok. If I do not answer he will text one of my daughters to check on me. Sometimes it is a lifesaver when it is two arrows down and was running at 110. Helps me get the quick glucose I need. Love the new technology.
Use Dexcom/Clarity app. My husband was getting low alarms, not since we recently updated Android phones the app doesn’t seem to work. ☹️
I do not share my CGM data through an app with my wife. She hears my alerts going off, and says, “how are you doing honey?”
I recently began sharing my data with my son. The idea was more for him to understand how the ups and downs of diabetes work than for him to help me since he lives two hours away from me, plus the fact that he’s busy on meetings on a daily base, and turns off his phone at night, so not following the app all the time.
From time to time he’s called to make sure I’m ok or to ask what’s going on that my graphs show big ups and downs.
I’ve been on insulin for 50
Years and I don’t think my children are concerned about me dying from a low.
I use a G6 but I put down only the two I use and share. I’ve turned off all the other ones that are just annoying. By habit, I check my levels constantly throughout the day when I am working or doing things that might cause me to drop.
I use a guardian 3 sensor with a minimed 770g from medtronic. App is still not working and I get a notification that app is not compatible with my android system. So waiting on Medtronic to resolve this issue. Hope it’s soon.
I used to share with family but quit when they complained about the nuisance karma disturbing their work/school/life. They may come a day when I do it again but it will be out necessity not curiosity
I mistakenly chose “other” as I didn’t read the “loved ones”. I share my CGM data with my husband, my neurologist and endo.
I should have chosen both high and low alerts, as my husband is the only one who receives the high and low alerts in case I need immediate help.
The other two receive the data to help me with my ongoing health and treatment. They are appreciated, but not loved ones.
The guy sitting next to me at the monthly diabetic meeting pulled out his Medtronic 630G and said, “Hmm, 196.”
I then pulled out my tSlim X2 and said, “See you two and raise you two.”
The room erupted in laughter. Guess they thought we were playing poker. 😵
If you use a CGM and share your CGM data with any of your loved ones through an app, for which types of CGM alerts does your network receive notifications? Select all that apply! Cancel reply

I share my data on Sugarmate web app, it’s bookmarked on Mom’s computer, but the only time it shows on her computer is if I go down and load it onto her browser, but even when able to be monitored on her computer, the only times Mom has ever looked at the readings have been times when I’ve loaded it on her computer and left the Sugarmate page showing on her browser. But instead of using the data she can see, she usually just closes the tab after I leave the computer so it ends up wasted effort to bother to have it on her computer.
