Only issue with Libre is that it uses RFID technology. Every once in a the reader wont read the sensor properly and makes you wait 10 minutes before doing another scan.
I’ve found it to be with 15 points of my blood meters…so it pretty accurate. Put it on your arm…but it works just about anywhere. Just not “tested and approved” for anywhere else but the arm.
Before i got the G6 to use with the X2 pump i used the libre for almost a year.
The sensor stays put and does pretty well with body sweat. It’s super sticky yet didnt bother my sensitive skin…bandaids irritate my skin…this stuff didnt…but my g6 does…its whatever is in the particular adhesive used. I only had one get pulled out when my 150lb Alaskan Malamute decided that while we were rough housing around we saw the sensor and went oooh shiny and wanted to play with it. To be honest i had less issues with the Libre than my G6, but the libre doesnt connect to my pump.
It’s semi automatic insertion…you have to place it, and press down with pressure…it does the rest.
I think my only complaint is no way to really recycle the insertion device…such a waste of materials.
Lasts for 10/14 days depending on which one you have. However using an android device you can use the sensor roughly 3 days beyond its lifespan. As the app on the phone just reads the sugar reading. I would do this during the warmup period on a new sensor. So i always had a reading.
Hope it works for you cause finger sticks suck. Once you get a taste of that freedom…you wont ever want to go back.
