I'm alive!! CGM Question

hey hey hey men what's been going on? So for those of you who recall me...I'm still alive! Been a really hectic couple of years but still kicking.

Was wondering if anyone has much dealing/understanding of constant glucose monitoring systems, namely how to get one if you're not diabetic. Here's the reason, my father is type 2 and just last week I was 108 fasted, first time ever over 100, this morning I was 100 (on expired test strips, getting fresh). This is not a 5 alarm fire but I recall a Rogan-Ben Greenfield podcast about Ben wearing a CGM just to see how he reacted to different foods, stress, fasting, exercise, etc. To me, this seems like a really interesting idea.

Anyway of getting around a script for one of these? I just reached out to my doc about it but who knows if it will be allowed by them, you know, they have to approve me to be able to monitor my own body!

going to France at the end of the month, anyone know if they are OTC in Europe? Canada? China?

Just a note. I've gone into docs a few times and they've said "I can't prescribe that for you. After further questioning they say," Well, actually I can prescribe it, but what I mean is insurance won't pay for it." Irritating. Why don't they differentiate between the two?

I don't have a clue on the monitor but maybe medical supply stores might sell them directly?

I know you can get glucose monitors in amazon. Can you get the constant kind there too? I really do not know the diff, sorry.

no worries gents my doc was cool and wrote me a script for FreeLibre. Now just a question of the cost. I don't really want insurance to cover it because I somewhat feel this is voluntary so the 'system' shouldn't pay for it but if it's $2k or something my morals may get flexible.

Jipped, It seems you can buy a portion of the CGM online, but only 1 of the 2 parts you need. There is a sensor and a monitor I guess, for lack of a better way of putting it.

They also checked my A1C and it was 5.0 so I'm fine, wanted them to check fasted insulin too but she didn't, guess I may look at privatemdlabs for that.
