Once Dexcom caught onto what we were doing they cut the programme off and started selling it through Costco at full retail price… which really bites. I am sorry, that you thought that they were still doing it… But they only did it for about 5 months when Costco started to carry Dexcom supplies for really cheap for their receivers and

@Hhorton1211 Hi Haylee and welcome to the TypeOneNation Forum!. I’ve been in your position having been laid-off from work during the depression of the 1970’s, 24% unemployment in Boston, while supporting a family of four and needing to pay for our health insurance and buy my diabetes supplies - no such thing as prescription insurance at all until the 1990’s - while starting my own business.
Does anyone know of resources to buy cheap Medtronic pump
I have used ADW www.adwdiabetes.com and Total Diabetes Supply, totaldiabetessupply.com they run specials all the time for 10% off and shipping is free if you order over $90-100. The infusion sets are around $120 a box, reservoirs are 35-45. You might also consider using Inset infusion sets. Lilly Humalog is the most expensive insulin.

I was just informed that they consider a box of 5 Medtronic Enlite sensors, that are approved by the FDA for only 6 days at a time, are considered a 90-day supply by my insurance. I have been able to order them without a problem every 4 to 5 weeks up until August. They won’t let me pay out-of-pocket either because they are prescription and must go

The strips are now off the market and have been recalled and have been replace with new strip chemistry and patient warnings. That is why a Meter is classified as a Class 1 medical device.

Baby is here! - Pregnancy - JDRF TypeOneNation Community Forum
Well ladies…I’m no longer pregnant (though I still have a belly haha)! Our little boy was delivered via unplanned c-section on Jan 9th; I was 36w+5d when he was born and he weighed 9lbs1oz! He’s doing well though and we had a great team to support us at the hospital. I wasn’t able to get my milk supply started obviously but the hospital has a donor milk program where healthy mom’s
Dexcom G6 issues - Technology & Management - JDRF
In the last 3 weeks, we’ve had 4 not deploy. This is a real problem, because we use the Mastisol liquid adhesive, which is great, but a real problem when the plastic thing doesn’t deploy. We have to practical break the plastic thing to get it off the abdomen and the needle is sticking out.
