Christmas. However, as soon as I became

pregnant I self-funded myself to use them

uninterrupted and have never looked

back. Because I'd already used Libre, I

was used to seeing continuous data - in

fact I was really grateful for it, and it made

the switch to Dexcom less overwhelming.

Dexcom is a continuous glucose monitor

as opposed to a flash glucose monitor

like Libre, which means that you receive

alarms when your blood sugars are going

low or high; in pregnancy, this was crucial!

Likewise, although the alarms can seem

annoying, they are there for a purpose.

One way or another, I found it very easy

does that work with diabetes control?

"With the Dexcom, I simply used the

original handheld device; I didn't use

the Smartphone app when it became

available, as I couldn't see how I would

play the violin and perform while looking

at my phone all the time. Even on silent,

it would vibrate and would be heard. In

order to go on stage, I'd check my levels

before I went on and if it was low-ish I

have some sweeties. That might mean

I'd come off stage a bit high, but I'd get

through the performance. I still use insulin

pens for multiple daily injections (MDI). As

part of my work I am often performing in

TV studios where there can be an awful lot

of wires, I just found a tubed pump didn't

appeal. I thought I'd snag it or somehow

come a cropper!"

Back to babies and pregnancies,

Holland has some happy news. "Using

Dexcom, I found my pregnancy with

Barnaby manageable," she explains, "The

G6 lets you see the direction of travel as

well as patterns, which means you can

attempt to achieve greater control - a finer

balance using insulin. The first trimester is

when you are a little more likely to have
