I am only reaching the end of my second month using a continuous glucose monitor. I postponed the decision to wear yet another device for more than two years for many reasons:
- Not wanting to carry another thing on me, on top of the pump, the glucose meter with test strips and all the backup gear (extra meter, insulin pens, extra lancets if I feel the urge to change them, etc).
- The fact that I changed jobs twice in the past two years. Changing jobs led to changes in my insurance coverage and, as we know, this can sadly be the reason why you opt for or against a diabetes treatment option.
- The precision offered by devices in the market hadn’t gotten to a point where I felt it was worth the extra gear and the extra financial sacrifice (in spite of the insurance coverage).
