    Hello,

    I will be relocating to Denmark soon. I'm currently using Medtronic insulin pump and Dexcom G6 CGM. I'm wondering what do I need to do in Denmark to get supplies for these. I emailed the local (to my location in Denmark) diabetes center, but haven't heard back yet.

    As far as I understand, I will have to be granted access to these, and there is no other way to order these without a prescription, even if I'm willing to pay 100% out of pocket. What are the chances that my endocrinologist in diabetes center won't grant me access to CGM and pump supplies? Is it possible?

    I'm trying to understand the worst case scenario.

    Thanks!
