Rosemary Humby replied to Chrispy's discussion 'what CGM should I choose'
"Yes, what Chrispy says is true and it makes a big difference to me, since I too have to find the money for each sensor. What happens in the UK is that generally the sensor gets replaced if it fails before 7 days. After that you're on your own,…"

Rosemary Humby replied to Chrispy's discussion 'what CGM should I choose'
"Hi Brunetta When I changed to the Dexcom I wasn't really expecting there to be much difference from the Medtronic CGMS - I just thought it was worth a try. But I was amazed at how different it is. With the Medtronic CGMS I was, like you say,…"

Rosemary Humby replied to Chrispy's discussion 'what CGM should I choose'
"I've used both the Medtronic CGMS and the Dexcom 7+, in each case for long enough to give a sensible verdict. In my view the Dexcom is far superior - more accurate and easier to use. I found the Medtronic CGMS infuriating and really hard work.…"

Rosemary Humby replied to Rosemary Humby's discussion 'DexCom CGMS now available in UK' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Hi Dee No, I just took the plunge. But do talk to John Hughes if this worries you - he's very helpful. I did some serious research online before buying it, and corresponded with a couple of personal contacts who've used the Dex for some…"

Dee replied to Rosemary Humby's discussion 'DexCom CGMS now available in UK' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Hi Rosemary, Thanks for that info, I'll probably ring them later. Did you get a chance to trial one before you bought it? Or did you just take the plunge? Dee"

Rosemary Humby replied to Rosemary Humby's discussion 'DexCom CGMS now available in UK' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Hi Dee I don't have much doubt that it would help you. I'm finding it amazing. On the total cost you need to contact Advanced Therapeutics and ask to speak to John Hughes. Apart from the initial outlay for the receiver etc, the main issue…"

Dee replied to Rosemary Humby's discussion 'DexCom CGMS now available in UK' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Hi I am seriously considering one of these as I have a fear of hypos, a HbA1c of 10.4, and I think it could help me. I'm just trying to get a grasp of the actual costs as i would be funding it myself. Someone mentioned sensors are £54!!…"

Rosemary Humby replied to Stuart's discussion 'Paradox.... help explain please?' in the group Continuous Glucose Monitor Users
"I'm a relatively new user of DexCom CGMS, but I've also used CGMS in the past with the Medtronic system. I find the DexCom invaluable and I wouldn't be without it now. If it's maybe difficult to get your head around the…"

"Does the unit available in the UK have mmol/l rather than the US units? Thanks Dee"

Chris Taylor replied to Rosemary Humby's discussion 'DexCom CGMS now available in UK' in the group United Kingdom Diabetics
"Hi Dee, I paid $599 for all the kit. Receiver, transmitter, case, charger, software, cables etc. but I accept that they had a special deal going on at the time. £500 for just the transmitter is already $825 at the current exchange rate of…"

"Hi Dee Glad you're getting it sorted out. I'm delighted with my DexCom. It's superb. What a difference it's making to me just in the short period of time I've had it. I got it for its accuracy really, but if it ends up…"
