Hi. I have had 2 CGM used in the last month, just for 3-4 says each, to show what my blood sugars are running. I was going down to 20 every few days, but also going back up to the 300's. My "old' Doctor kept telling me that my A1C was 6.8, so I was doing "great". I was not doing great. I felt horrible, all the time. Crashing at night, I was so scared to go to sleep. I have had a bypass, 2 stents since then, retinopathy, cataracts removed in both eyes, and now macular degeneration and neuopathy....I am 46~~ SO, changing doctors, they have monitored me twice now, and have suggested a pump. The CGM showed I was all over the map. I told them I would like to have a CGM along w/ the pump, but they said at this time, Medicare / Medicaid refused to pay for it. I didn't get a reason.
Anyone else w/ this type of insurance that has had any luck????
Thanks for listening.
