The Dexcom Strikes Back!

So, besides becoming a year older on Friday, I also received a brand spanking new Dexcom continuous glucose monitoring system.

Why the new system dude? You have already had a Dexcom for quite some time right?

Correct! But when the warranty ended and my Dexcom rep called me up to let me know, we also discovered that my insurance would cover a new one! YAY!

Well, not so fast. That was back in January I got that call.

The problem was that our insurance changed at work which meant I had to prove I was worthy enough to have a CMGS. Well, Doctor Awesome filled out the forms and insurance was like, “as if?”

So he sent a more convincing letter and they finally got it done! Woot!

On a side note, two other drugs he is still fighting for but gave me samples to last a few weeks until he puts the smack down!

Anyhow, having a receiver is nice. The screen is so clear and scratch free and after being without sensors for over a month, I realize how much I need it and how much my fingers miss it too! I test less with the Dex.

So it may have not been an actually birthday gift but I was happy to open the box up on Friday and have a sensor on even before I went to bed.

But I must say, probably one of the coolest gifts I got (pun intended) was this...

 

It’s a USB powered mini fridge with my current favorite sodapop. w00t!

One thing I did when I had the dexcom was I ordered a BodyGuardz screen cover. These things have always kept my iPhones clean of scratches - the product itself doesn't scratch either. Its well worth the $20 for it, I promise! (If you do order it, make SURE you get the ultra-tough one!!! )

Such a great article giving some great information genuinely explaining some of the key things which you need to be aware of in particular about the part relating to getting some couseling prior to getting a loan, so many people don't even consider it.

Crazy! I just got MY new Dexcom on Tuesday! I swear, it's scary sometimes how we are on the same schedules with this stuff. Can you tell me when I'm going to hit the lotto? :-)
