I might be between CGM’s later this month while I work to have all my prior authorizations and red tape for the Eversense squared away with my rinky dink health insurer. I am considering using the Freestyle Libre for a few months to tide me over into 2019 because I have stockpiled some LIbre 10 day sensors and would like to use them up.
Question: Has anyone had success with alternate sites for the Libre sensor? I tried the Libre earlier this year and was generally happy with durability and accuracy but discovered that I can’t get a reading through my hockey pads on the upper arm. I’d like to try belly placement or lower side abdomen but understand these alternate sites are strongly discouraged by Abbott.
