It's two years later and still no approval! Every year they tell us 'next year!' and nothing ever happens. I created a petition to create awareness of the issue. Maybe if enough of us let Health Canada know we want Dexcom they'll approve it? I wear an Animas pump, so I currently have NO access to CGM! How is that fair?
As I said ...I am for " competiton " even if I don't 100 percent agree with Natalia's reason spelled out in the " petition " ...as a MM sensor wearer, putting the sensor into my body never was a big concern ...and my Hubby reminds me often : I have a LOW pain threshhold ( sp ??) .
You are right :) Perhaps I do sound like I am attacking the Medtronic sensor a little bit. I also want healthy competition. I am a former Medtronic user, so maybe Dexcom won't be all it's hyped up to be and I'll want to switch back! It just sucks that people with any other pump cannot use the Medtronic sensor...
I edited the paragraph in the petition, as my goal is not to attack any particular company. People with diabetes should choose whichever product suits their lifestyle! Thanks for the feedback Nel :)
