My mum, who is type 1, has an appt at the hospital Friday, to discuss getting a sensor. But she's worried that she won't meet the criteria. She does about 8 blood tests a day...but it was more a few weeks ago. She has arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome, which makes it painful or difficult to do blood tests at times, she attends the eye clinic every 6 months, as she has changes at the back of her eyes. We recently went away and a family member got her a sensor to try...it was life changing for those 2 weeks....she was going to bed more confident as she knew which way her sugars were going...the alarm system was brilliant and a couple of times went off early...so she could deal with a low and not wake up with a hypo. Her diabetes nurse at our doctors surgery said she didn't see why she couldn't have one. I just think as the day is getting closer, she wants to be prepared to put her case across. What are your opinions on this? Do you think she stands a good chance of getting one?
