It saddens me that I waited so long to start on a CGM. My numbers these past 10 days have never been better. Never. I'm able to see trends, better prepare for food and catch highs and lows before they become problems.

It saddens me even more that this technology isn't readily available for everyone that needs it.

If you are on the fence about starting with a CGM I can't think of too many reasons not to do so.

If you had enough money only for a CGM or a pump, which one do you think would be a better choice ?

Personally? I can easily manage daily with MDI. The CGM though eliminates (for me anyways) about 15 finger stick tests a day. Beyond that, I get to see what my blood is going constantly. The compliment each other well, but if I had to choose you can take the pump, I'll keep a CGM.
