where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I recently underwent a dexcom 7 day test sensor trail, and for the first time in more than 25 yrs I was able to relax. I'm brittle, and have struggled since day one, but my insurance won't pay for it.

persistence is key with insurance and cgms. Get a letter of necessity from your doctor and keep making up as many "excuses" as you can imagine like "hypo unawareness", "more than 3 hypos a week". I went as far as saying planning a pregnancy when we weren't thinking of starting a family yet. But as many boxes as you can tick gets their attention. Good luck

this is actually me, I tried connecting this account to Facebook and ended up with 2 separate accounts.

I was trying to get my location in, like it is now, but before I was done I'd had more accounts than I could possibly use, and now I can't get rid of any of them.

I tried sending a message to one of the app creator's, I'm just waiting to see what they can do about this mess I've created.

to everyone who responded earlier, I'm too old to get pregnant. I'm on Medicare and Medicaid

and Medicare as yet hasn't coded the sensors yet. I'm checking my sugar up to 15 times a day.

as I have been for years now, and still I have at least between 10 and 50 hypos yearly. the more active I am the more brittle.
