@JacobMedalie Hi I am a newly diagnosed diabetic, diagnosed about a month ago. Tomorrow I have an endo visit, and I was wondering when we could get the CGM?

For my personal opinion, because your a new diabetic, you should really learn about diabetes and what are the best food choices. Once you are comfortable, you should talk to your doctor about being put on an insulin pump and CGM. I highly recommend to use the Medtronic MiniMed equipment because it is what keeps me healthy. You can talk to your doctor to find out if you are capable of going on a pump yet.
