    I am using the DexCom CGMS and I think it works reasonably well considering that the product technology is not really very accurate. 20% deviations are supposed to be about right but I find some very large ones. So never bolus unless you check with a glucose meter. But it does flag trends and I find it quite useful. I am using an Animas pump that I
