Medtronic Guardian Connect Continuous Glucose Monitor

Medtronic Guardian Connect Continuous Glucose Monitor

I wanted a CGM, continuous glucose monitor.

For me.

Insurance says no coverage because I am type 2, not insulin dependent.

Fine - I will get my own!
Maybe, depending on cost, if you know what I mean.
The search is on!
Here is the second one I checked on:

Medtronic Guardian Connect CGM

The Medtronic Guardian Connect basic info:
approved for 14-74 years
sharable data
up to 7 day sensor
simple applicator for sensor
transmits data wirelessly to display device
display device available or iOS compatible device
CareLink program for trends and patterns
I like it!  I don't like the price~
One month of sensors $553/Cash price $345.
Transmitter (yearly)  $775/Cash price $620
SO monthly that works out to $617/Cash $397
Ouch, just like the Dexcom G6
Both are quite pricey when paying the entire price out of pocket.
One more to go.
Freestyle Libre CGM
