New Dexcom G4

Would you spend an additional $400 to upgrade to the new #Dexcom G4? (Without insurance reimbursment!)

I have been receiving a lot of emails from Dexcom advising me to upgrade to the new G4 system from my Seven Plus system. That is great, and I would absolutely love to, but for $400?

According to the email I just read, I can’t even have my insurance reimburse  me for the new system. What would be the benefit anyhow? A better screen. A different senor. More accurate readings? Well, maybe.

I’m pretty much a girly-girl. The fact that they make the new Dexcom G4 with a pink cover is pretty sweet. (I’ve gotten the pink case for my Omnipod meter too!) I don’t know if I am willing to dish out so much money for almost the same thing I already have.

For now, I am going to hold off on ordering it. Thank you Dexcom for thinking about me, but living with type 1 diabetes is already expensive enough!
