What was the outcome of your search? Did you get a CGMS? I'm looking into it and figure a lot may have changed since you were looking. Any other entrants to Canada and what about accuracy these days?
Hi doodlebug. Apologies; I missed this!
I did end up getting a Dexcom system when I went to the UK in the summer, and brought it home with no trouble. It's been really marvelous, and it's helping me gradually but steadily bring down my A1C. I'm actually surprised still by how accurate it is most of the time, and it hasn't given me any problems. I've only had one bad sensor in all the months I've used it.
As I mentioned below, I've been using the Medtronic CGM for the past month for a medical trial, and can't say I'm a fan. There really has been a big difference in accuracy for me, as well as a huge difference in comfort!
This has been an interesting thread ... I am also interested in a CGM but use an Animas pump so don't want to use Minimed (plus have heard bad things about it, plus would not be able to see the receiver) and would like a Dexcom. Been waiting for them to be available forever. I also heard the stuff about the weather balloons. Obviously it didn't come out in 2011 like the Dexcom person thought, but I really wish that it would come to Canada soon!
