You've hopefully heard about the newly FDA-approved Dexcom SHARE system -- a docking station for the popular G4 continuous glucose monitor that allows the data to be beamed directly to up to 5 smartphones anywhere in the world. But have you heard from anyone actually using it yet?
Well, you will now!
D-Dad and author Scott Benner, of the blog Arden's Day, has been using the system with his daughter and has just submitted a video to our DiabetesMine Test Kitchen product review hub.
Scott says that as a parent, it's all about the sleep. Perhaps you will agree... or perhaps as an adult PWD (person with diabetes), you'll be more interested in the value of having a significant other following along on your blood glu-coaster ride from afar, helping to keep you safe. Either way, you'll surely enjoying watching Scott's down-to-earth take on this new high-tech tool.
Check out Scott's review by clicking below. And we hope you'll check out our growing collection of Test Kitchen product reviews, by and for people with diabetes.
