If your consultant writes a letter outlining the medical need its free. Id recommend the dexcom over the libra. If your control isn't perfect and a cgm could improve it, that is the need justified. My hba1c went form 7.5ish to 6.5 and has stayed in or around that for 2 years now. I love it.
Or are you still managing insulin by injecting?
The CGM all seem to have a fairly marked effect on control for all shades of diabetes.
Would love to get into the specifics of the HSE numbers on benefit of prolonged tight HbA1C control versus overall cost of care per patient.
Does going with CGM give enough scope to allow savings or even cost neutral?
If it does, even on the comfort factor alone for patients, surely it's worth it?
If it doesn't?
I'd hope they will show their figures, rather than push back the review again.
