where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hi, I'm using a Medtronic insulin pump and I am interested in continuous glucose monitoring. For those of you using a Medtronic pump and cgm, how much do they cost and how long do they last? Thanks!

I have the Guardian Link CGM with the new Med 630g system. It's integrated. My insurance paid $#### for the whole system. The transmitter has a one year warranty bit can last two.

A CGM alone is cheaper, obviously, but the monthly upkeep is not cheap.

I have a Dexcom - I can normally make my sensors stretch 4-5 weeks as opposed to the suggested 1 week. This certainly drops the cost a lot.

For the prices, I'll definitely do that if I could ever get one. Great idea!

I use KT tape to hold it down, that works the best for me.
