Over the past couple of weeks, we have been sharing a slide series on the use of CGM and the value for our patients. This has been one of our most viewed slide series and indicates to us that you want to offer your patients the best technology for managing their diabetes.

Usually this means a pump used with a CGM device. This works well for patients who can afford both devices and hopefully will not have their supplies taken off their formularies for care. In addition, we know that the cost to use a CGM is much less than a pump, both in initial cost and monthly supply cost. The question is, if your patient can only afford one device and supplies for it, which should we choose?

This week, in our Homerun Slides, we look at the value of using a CGM device with multidose injections and if that is a viable choice for many of our patients.
