"Ahh, it's the Enlites than, although in a different colour scheme (blue with grey button) just to be awkward. Sadly still not had one with doesn't hurt yet though :("

"If its the old ones you're using, they come with a long blue inserter and are put in at an angle. It really was like a harpoon. The new Enlites have a grey/dark blue inserter that fires in vertically. Pics here…"

"That's the one with the blue inserter gadget like the quickset you press and zap in it goes? Sounds a lot like the one I've been using, to be honest haven't paid much attention to the name of it other than it being from Medtronic and…"

Alison Finney replied to Michelle's discussion 'Nhs funding for continuous glucose monitoring systems' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Have you tried the Enlite sensors from Medtronic? They've got rid of the harpoon insertion that the old ones use, and go in vertically like a Quickset. The needle is much smaller and I rarely have one that hurts when it goes in now. I wear mine…"

Nyadach replied to Michelle's discussion 'Nhs funding for continuous glucose monitoring systems' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Maybe over exaggerating a bit on the harpoon part, but they do feel rather more like something you want to go fishing with and personally I find they are rather irksome when inserted, and even more so when being inserted. Removal wise they do come…"

"I am partially lucky enough to get one every so often...well the Medtronic one which is a mini harpoon if that's lucky :P and I only use it for trends as I don't think I've ever had an accurate reading out of one yet. Anyhow, getting…"

"I have just received notice from the Northampton Hospital to say that I can have a CGM for 1 week only to see what is going on with my very erratic levels. We put the request in ub January 2011! Only just come. Apparently they have funding for two…"

Teo replied to Michelle's discussion 'Nhs funding for continuous glucose monitoring systems' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"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 have used a CGM of a different make. The do occasional funding so I have one every few months and I am not going to lie, I hate every minute of having it. To onlookers, this is strange as I love my pump to the world. The CGM actually makes my…"

Jgos replied to Michelle's discussion 'Nhs funding for continuous glucose monitoring systems' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"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"

Jgos replied to Michelle's discussion 'Nhs funding for continuous glucose monitoring systems' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"So just a few numbers - personal of course - I have had a Navigator CGM from Abbott for about three years now. It has been fantastic on all fronts. I have got back into cycling and skiing with no problems (except when it gets too cold which oddly is…"

Alison Finney replied to Michelle's discussion 'Nhs funding for continuous glucose monitoring systems' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"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…"
