Dexcom G6 discount card - Healthcare & Insurance - JDRF
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.

Finding insurance [self-employed, NYC] - Healthcare
Hi everyone, This November I’ll turn 26 and age off my parents’ health insurance. I live in New York City and am self-employed, so I won’t have an employee plan I can join. I’m not looking to find a new job. My only prescriptions are the Tandem T-Slim X2 insulin pump, Dexcom G6 sensors, and Humalog.

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’m a freshman in college. This semester in my Composition II class, we’re doing basically one large research project. We started with an annotated bibliography, then moved to a literature review.

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.
