Bye Bye Dex!

I've been using the DexCom STS seven for several months now. It has been a great experience, I've seen some improvement in my HBA1C and managed avoiding more lows than pre CGM. Unfortunately, the $240 a month is too expensive for me to continue to pay out-of-pocket, so I've adjusted my last basal rate with Dex. Now that I'm stable, it's time to say bye bye to Dex.

I've put in an insurance claim with Federal BCBS, and I'm anxiously awaiting what I'm sure will the first of many rejections. So, until I'm approved, adios!
