FRED is proud to launch a call for action in our page #Access T1D so all T1D children can benefit from new technologies to better manage their diabetes.
- ACCESS TO CONTINUOUS GLUCOSE MONITORING SYSTEMS (CGM)
Petition: Adding Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems to the list of accessories that are reimbursed by RAMQ Medicare
Developing during the childhood or at the beginning of adulthood, Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune, chronical disorder characterized by the insufficient production of insulin. Hence, Type 1 diabetic persons need to monitor continuously their blood sugar and get insulin injections to avoid severe complications that may lead to death. Unfortunately, the cost of CGM are not covered by RAMQ. We invite you to sign this petition so all diabetic children can benefit from these systems.
