"Hi Michelle, I have had Type 1 since 1939 and recently found I have hypoglycaemic unawareness. NICE has recommended that this is a reason they accept for CGM on NHS. It took me 2 years pleading to get it. Keep trying. I am sending this because I…"

"I suppose that it always depends on the quality of the particular make. Probably if a common glucose meter on finger pricks is a bad quality one, they can also make such drastic mistakes as the CGM you describe."

"I agree AC - but as you said we have to make an argument for CGM from a cost side. 1 being day to day. 2 being long term"

"AC I agree with you that we need to raise awareness of CGM - my care team had barely used one until I started using one, and they certainly learned about the benefits of it from my experience. How do you decide that they're too expensive for…"

Alison Finney replied to Michelle's discussion 'Nhs funding for continuous glucose monitoring systems' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Hi. CGMS works by placing a sensor under your skin (I wear mine in my stomach or back) which monitors the levels of glucose in your intistitial fluid (fluid just under your skin). You wear a small transmitter attached to the sensor and that sends…"
