What #cgm4all is

Are you a South African Type 1 diabetic or a Type 1 supporter? πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦β €
We need your help πŸ™πŸ» β €
From May to August, the medical aid schemes in South Africa will be busy writing up their 2021 Chronic Medical Aid Benefits List. β €
We want to see Continuous Glucose Monitors on that list! β €
β €
If you use a Dexcom, Medtronic or FreeStyle Libre sensor or if you are currently finger pricking and would like to go onto a CGM, please send us a video of no longer than 1 minute or a photo with a caption on how a CGM has or could change your life. β €
β €
If you are a diabetic supporter and have seen the effect a CGM has had on your friend or family member, please send us a video of no longer than 1 minute or a photo with your friend/family member and a caption on how a CGM has or could change their life. β €
β €
Let’s work together as Type 1 advocates and supporters to make this life changing technology affordable and accessible to South African diabetics πŸ’™
