thank you very much for all this dtails and your offer to help.
You ask several questions, and to be short but as clear as possible. Let's start by my actual situation. I am under insulin pump since more than 10 years. I used to be in every "new" technology , medicine and program to improve my diabete survey. I am under a survey of a diabete specialist in France, in Paris. I am already doing a lot of finger testing, I am correcting my insulin injection with a bonus/malus system. i try as many as possible to have a diet for diabete, minimum of suggar, bread and other are balanced and I meet my specialist 1 time a quarter. Finaly we conclude to go for a test with a CGM system. It was the Guardian REAL-Time Continuous Glucose Monitoring System. We decide to go for this test with my specialist because I want to give birth and I need to really follow my glucose level more closer. I have already 2 boys and one is brain injured, we thing that it can be because of really often loss, specially during nights, and sometimes also during nights i can have very high level of glucose (4,27 g teh last one). My specialist things that because of my weight the insulin is not absorbed teh same way everytime by my body. And it is why it's hard fro her to stabilize me. As you suggest, i've been in contact whith Medronic France, who said directly that it is forbidden for them to provide me with this system because of the health insurance not giving the authorization for teh French market. So i've been in contact with Medronic Holland., and i found a way to be supplied by a luxembourg company but only for consumables: sensors basically. All the other things, like canula, battery pump, insulin is taken in care by the health insurance in france. So i am really just missing the Guardian monitor, and i will be supplied for the sensors here in Luxembourg. For sure i can provide the according of my specialist to survey me with this system. i would like to go for this one since it was this one tested in hospital. But as there is not a lot, just 1 by hospital they were not agree to let it to me more that 15 days. I know from Medronic Canada that persons in canada can by the Guardian monitor and the mini-link transmitter if they have an agreement from their specialist to use it. Want i am looking is either someone who want to change from the seperate monitor to a global pump system(paradigm one) either someone who will be very understanding and byu for me the system, for sure i will send the money first.
If you can give me more information about people in UK who were able to byu CGM system, please telle me more. If you are knowing another system as efficient as the Medtronic one, please tell me more. But really I know what I am talking about, do not be affraid to let me fall in a complicated system with no data. I even already agreed with Medtronic Holland to have a training for the CGM. It is really just a matter to buy it. Do not ask me why thexy can provide me whith teh consumables but not the monitor and mini-link, I simply do not understand and they do not either. They found a way to give away the sensors by a non medical branch of their company , but the monitor is hard to by-pass the health needs obviously.
thank you very much for all your help.
