I'm thinking of getting the Dexcom continuous glucose monitor. Anyone using their new G4 system? My Dr. says CGMs don't track well when blood sugars are high or low. Is this new system any better? What's your experience with it?

Ive had my dexcom G4 for a year. It really helps me to know whats going on. Theres an arrow near the reading which indicates pretty accurately if the reading is inc.,dec, or. Staying the same. There is definately a margin for error which can be better controlled by calibrating the dexcom.
The short of it. I thought id hate being liked with another device, but i think its helped me maintain good control of my health and i like being able to see whats going on.
