I found out today that my insurance did approve my getting a CGM. They’ll pay 80% of the costs, in other words. So it’ll ship out this week and then I should meet with a nurse next week to start using it.
I’m excited about the additional knowledge (is power) I’ll have from the monitor for things like getting warnings of lows and highs before I feel them and seeing more clearly the effects of different foods on my blood sugar.
I’m nervous about having another piece of equipment to plug into my body. Sometimes it seems like I’m turning into a machine. A real pancreas is so little, but having to have equipment try to mirror is much bulkier.
It’s going to be weird. Maybe I’ll meet some folks this weekend at the conference to talk about it.
