CGMS has it limitations, especially accuracy during rapid rises & falls in BS. It's not for everyone (so I understand where you're coming from Spike), and obviously there's a long learning curve. The #1 greatest value for me is the trending info which has allowed me to tweak my basal rates (especially during the night/sleep) and refinement of my bolus wizard calculations...which has resulted in being hypoglycemic less. The early warning aspect of the trending info combined with high/low glucose alarms has prevented many lows in dangerous situations, like driving.
I agree that it has its limitations and I certainly agree that it's not for everyone. Similarly, pumps are not for everyone. My point was that saying it (the RTS) is inaccurate is a generalization. I guess I am too caught up in semantics.

I said i have been online since 1996. I didn't mean I was reading about CGMS in 1996, for gawd's sakes--that's idiotic.
I'm not sure why you are being so argumentative, but I'm getting really tired of this, so you'll be arguing with yourself after this post, as I'm D-O-N-E.
Sorry if I offended you. That was not my intent.
