My son has Type 1 Diabetes and we have good insurance like Carlie, but we pay $600-$800 out of pocket every month. The Dexcom device is $1,600 a year and a weekly (yes, weekly) sensor is $85. It's worth every penny.
After borrowing a Dexcom (continuous glucose monitor) from her doctor's office, it alarmed and woke her up at 3:00 in the morning. She has something called hypoglycemic unawareness, she can't feel lows when she is asleep. If this had not alarmed and woke her up her blood sugar could have continued going down until she began to seize and go into a coma and even die. This process can start around 40, so you can see how important this little device is.
