Continuous and flash glucose monitoring products
Access to fully subsidised continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring (Flash GM) products through the CGM Initiative as part of the NDSS are available for eligible people with type 1 diabetes or other conditions very similar to type 1 diabetes. You will find information about the CGM Initiative here.
You should talk with your diabetes health professional and together you can decide if CGM or Flash GM is suitable for you. This is because not all products are suitable for everyone.
Please view the CGM and Flash GM device summary and compatibility chart for information about the devices fully subsidised through the CGM Initiative as part of the NDSS, their compatibility with insulin pumps and smartphone and smart devices, and links to guidelines about appropriate use.
