Rene commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"Richard, I have had diabetes for 48 years and I was once told I must have done something really terrible to have gotten diabetes. So there you go. Many people still think we got it by eating too much sugar."

Rene commented on Emily Coles's event '#MedicareCoverCGM: panel discussion'
"On the side I have heard so many of y'all talk about Dexcom as being so great, why? If I'm going to pay for my own maybe I want something better than Medtronics."

Rene commented on Emily Coles's event '#MedicareCoverCGM: panel discussion'
"It seem like a double slap in the face, first you turn 65 and Medicare refuses to pay for you CGM and then you need to wait until they refuse to pay each time you want to order them. Can't they at least leave us dome dignity and just send us…"
