      Hi - think we may also be chatting on the UK support forum ?. You mentioned loss of hypo awareness and using that to get the Dexcom funded via NHS. Not sure if you drive, but your doc and hospital would need to tell DVLA regarding your loss of hypo awareness and it could impact them allowing you to drive. Its a worry I had and stopped me going down this route.
