Support JDRF’s #AccessForAll campaign by sending an email to your provincial or territorial representative TODAY. Explain how advanced glucose monitoring devices are life-changing for those with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and why it’s important provincial and territorial governments make them affordable and help reduce out-of-pocket costs for their constituents.
It’s important for provincial and territorial politicians to understand that continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring (FGM) devices are life-changing technologies that help people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) achieve healthier overall blood sugar numbers by taking the guesswork out of blood sugar management.
Evidence shows that use of these devices helps lower blood glucose (HbA1C) and helps users spend more time in target range. This means fewer incidences of life-threatening lows (hypoglycemia) or highs (hyperglycemia) which keeps people healthy and out of the hospital and significantly reduces the probability of long-term complications such heart attack, stroke and nerve damage. These long term complications are extremely costly to taxpayers.
