I go as cheap as I can, within the constraints of the marketplace. At the moment, its pretty bad.

If you can buy meat at $15-20Kg you’re doing well. Over here its $30-40+. I get cheap mince when I can (when people arent panic buying) and sausages from the butcher which dont have heaps of fillers. I like cabbage, but I didnt look at the price when I bought it the other day, I just needed to have it. Bacon can be got fairly cheap, but I have to be careful, too much salty stuff is bad for my heart and lungs... it never ends.

Dexcom really has its sights on the T2 market and the G7 is supposed to be thinner, cheaper, and so become more accessible. I do think/hope the T1/T2 thing is changing - may it speed up! - and more T2s are being prescribed CGMs. Still have a way to go but ... there's hope.

A lot of insurers in the US allow CGMs for insulin-dependent T2s, as does govt insurance. May Australia come aboard with this next.

In Australia, any Dexcom gear is 4x the cost of Libre. I looked at it to see if it might be a good alternative and decided not. Only Type1, too, for subsidy.

We need a change of government to gt change in this area
