I got call this weekend from Minimed.
A CGMS system is being delivered to my house tomorrow.
As much as I am super excited about finally getting a system, I feel bad for the Dexcom rep that was working with me. My endochronolgist told her he would not sign anything until he had an appointment with me since I skipped that last one.
I believe it was a roadblock put up because my Doctor has a close relationship with the Minimed rep. Totally understandable but you know me, I feel for everyone so I felt bad. I sent my Dexcom rep a message letting her know what happened and told her that I am still considering the Dexcom.
I want to try the Minimed unit, see my doctor, and then see if I like it. I also asked the Dexcom rep if I can try a system out after my endo appointment to see which one I like.
As soon as I find out I will let you all know what she says.
For anyone trying to get a CGMS, my advice would be run into your rep at the ADA convention, tell him or her how you feel ignored, and then follow it up with emails.
This all started for me back in November so it was not as easy as I thought it would be.
Honestly, if I had not run into my rep at the show, I doubt I would be receiving this system tomorrow.
And, any of you readers that have had experience with both, please comment or email (geosim23 [at] gmail [dot] com) me about it. I would love some tips, tricks, and whatever else you can offer to help me utilize this system to the best of my ability.
