So I'm trying the new Abbvie continuous glucose monitor - more as a science experiment than anything else. (My recent HbA1C was 5.5, which is fine).

The device seems to work pretty well. It does contain an impressively long needle, carefully hidden by a cup-like contraption. Application was actually painless though. The site is a very little bit achy - kind of like the day after a flu vaccine.

So far I've discovered why my fasting glucose jumps around from day to day (I only check it very sporadically) - that's because it jumps around inside an hour by nearly 15 points after I wake up but before breakfast.

I've also discovered I spike on bananas but not on white bread.
