My doctor just approved me for a CGM. For a while I've been communicating with Medtronc and they've been helping me out with everything. They just called today and said that they received the approval from my doctor and they're finnishing up the paperwork for the insurance.
My only concern is that my doctor did not suggest the Medtronic because she's expecianced problems with the sensors. She suggested the Dexcom. I've looked into that and I'm highly concidering that one instead. I like the smaller size of the sensor and the fact that they last 7 days instead of 3. My doctor's opinion is also important to me. I'm not sure if I should go with the Medtronic because everything is almost ready to go, or start over again with approval and everything from Dexcom. Any thoughts or oppinions on what CGM you would recommend would be helpfull.
I am also very active and do a lot of backpacking and outdoor activites, so I'm concerned about putting a sensor in a different location than the abdomen. Also with how the different sensors work with water and sweat.
