I am curious if anyone here pays for a CGM out of pocket (particularly the Minimed one) and if so, what is the cost? The Minimed is the only one we have in Canada hence why I ask about it, and I don't use a MM pump so it would be the standalone one ...
I am just curious so am reluctant to go contacting any companies as I don't want sales people going after me, hence why I am asking here.
Is a CGM worth buying to only use occasionally? How much (roughly) would it cost to use continuously?
I am interested in getting trends from a CGM only, I don't really care about absolute accuracy or high/low warnings. We do have a CGM through our diabetes clinic that can be rented but there is a waiting list for it and it's only for a few days. I so often feel like having something I own that I could use every few weeks when things aren't making sense would be so beneficial! I already test 10x per day but there are times like right now where my overnight readings are going all over the place and I have been unable to fix them even waking up 2-3x per night. A CGM would be so helpful to see what is going on, I think.
How did you go about getting one from the States?
