In this excerpt from “Still the World’s Worst Diabetes Mom: More Real Life Stories of Parenting a Child With Type 1 Diabetes,” Stacey lays out conversations to have BEFORE you decide whether and how to use a CGM. Thinking this out can make your child’s use of a CGM more effective and with less stress for you. It may even be helpful for adults considering sharing their CGM information.

Stacey’s new book is now available on Amazon, Target wherever you get books online. The audiobook will be out in a few weeks.
