I’ve had diabetes since I was 8, I’m 27 now, and I’ve been using multiple daily injections for the majority of my life. I don’t have insurance at all, but my step-mother wants to pay for me to get a pump and a continuous glucose monitor. But I need some advice.
Preferably, I’d want a wifeless pump. I don’t know if there’s such a thing as a wireless CGM. Also, it’s better if the components of the CGM are inexpensive. I don’t even know what they use… no strips, I’m guessing. I can get the insulin for the pump for free from Lilly Cares. Honestly, the CGM is more important to me than the pump, because I currently test about 8-10 times a day, and I would practically KILL for the ability to have alarms when my blood sugar drops or rises. That actually sounds like a little slice of heaven to me. What can you guys recommend?
