I'm thinking I'm kinda a nut in the way I view all this now, 3 months later, but I become ever more strongly convinced that CGMs and pumps are tech that should be available to any diabetic (1, 2, LADA, MODY, Martian, dog, tree shrew, etc.) who wants it and is willing to make use of it to maintain normal blood sugars.
I mean, do they tell people with glaucoma that they're only going to protect 50% of their sight? A person with sepsis, well, we'll "stabilize" the infection at a fever of 100F?
What is it with diabetes that "treating it enough" so that you only have your feety hacked off in your twilight years instead of in your 50s is acceptable?
I have diabetes. There are tools to control my BG in to normal range. Why shouldn't I have those tools?
