I would suggest a CGMS. I got this in april and I LOVE it! You can track how much insulin you take, how much carbs you eat, and a lot of other stuff all in one hand-held device. PLUS it keeps track of your blood sugar and displays it every 2-3 minutes. You can also see what your bood sugar is over a 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 for hour period because it graphs that. I have the Dexcom 7+. Oh and it tells you whether your blood sugar is dropping very fast, dropping a little fast, trending down, staying steady, trending up, going up a little fast, or going up very fast. It also has alarms you can set for when you go high or low. I hope this helps!
