    Wilf, did your daughter use Dexcom before? I'm wondering about the comfort of insertion and how it compares.
    that, and the lack of calibration required, would be the main draws. The downside would be the loss of the ability to remotely monitor and get alarms like Dex, though I've read there are hacks around that problem.

    Only finger pokes until now. Comfort of insertion was remarkable! :cwds:

    Hey, Freestyle Libre is coming to Canada! You can preorder now, delivery within the next month.

    If you have just been doing finger pokes to date then this is a game changer. Like a CGM-lite - costs much less, and does almost as much (but no alarms)..
