April 9, 2018: More Freestyle Libre Findings

***These are my thoughts as I use my Freestyle Libre Sensor. My doctor prescribed the sensor to me back in February.***

As I continue to wear my Freestyle Libre sensor to manage my Type 1 Diabetes, I notice that the sensor nearly always reads lower than the standard glucose meter reading. Before meals I test with both my standard glucose meter and my Libre sensor. I guess I’m too accustomed to using a regular meter, yet it’s helped figure out what my actual glucose levels are when it’s absolutely necessary. Some sensor durations are truly on point. Other sensor periods had a 50 point difference from my regular meter. It’s something I will certainly share with my doctor when I have my 3 month visit in May.
