So I started the libre today, it costs quite a bit so IDK if I’ll stick to it if it isn’t amazing, but I mostly wanna try it for the sake of easiness on my job to keep frequent testing without having to get everything out all the time, as I feel like due to medicaid restrictions I was slacking on testing, and it’s one way to get back into it…if the libre reads odd, more reason for a finger stick I guess? But otherwise it’s proving to be something that might make it easier for me at work as long as I ask them nicely if I can keep my phone on me to scan my sensor. I figure if I can stick with this and put up with it, might try to get a dexcom on my new private insurance …but due to my pump hating past, I wanna try to keep something on me and get used to something on my body. I realize it’s kinda crazy/silly considering it may not last well on me (will explain) and a dexcom would likely last better due to the fact I could hide it more lol…we’ll see. Application was easy as heck and painless to me so there’s that. I like the app too, seems simple enough and explains the application and whatnot 100% better than the paperwork that comes with it lol.
My only real concern is making it last 14 days. I work dementia care as a cna , I have violent residents and grabby ones where there is some degree of concern with that. I’m putting tegaderm on it because I’m worried about that. Not sure if that’s the best route, but I figured it’s at least a safe option. Would the customer service line cover this? I have no idea lol
