I worked so hard for the past two years or so to get my daughter approved from insurance company for the CGM. Well, finally got it and she hates it. Wore it for three days and will “never wear it again”. Its from medtronic and I’ve got to admit, it’s not at all what I thought it would be. But her biggest gripe is that it really hurt her on insertion.
So after two months of pleading with her to try it - I’ve basically given up (she’s 15). I’m just wondering is there any way I can sell this thing? I’ve looked on e-bay and don’t see any on there so I’m assuming that we are probably not allowed - not to sound like an airhead or anthing lol. And I’ve also got two insulin pumps - one animas and the medtronic (which we really don’t like) and I can’t seem to get any advice as to what to do with these things. I mean these are perfectly good and highly expensive pieces of equipment. Isn’t there some charity for underprivileged diabetics that people can donate to. If a doctor will approve the use of the item, and the parents can’t afford it for whatever reason, then why can’t someone just give them one. It kills me to have these things sitting here collecting dust! Obviously the pharmaceutical companies don’t want us to, but can’t something be done?
