    This is spot on! I consider the fact that the the low alarm on my son's CGM has saved us from having to administer glucagon and call 911 a far greater benefit than how it has impacted his A1C. Also, my son has so many non-consistent fluctuations in his BG at night that I'd be too terrified to sleep without the CGM.

    I think 3 maybe 4 provinces pay for insulin pumps, the rest of us pay out of pocket or have partial coverage with group insurance. In BC they pay for 100 kids to have pumps only. Supplies as far as I know are not covered

    Our anecdotal evidence. Her A1C has gone down .8 in 6 months on dexcom.
