I saw an old thread (made by Wilf I think) about the Libre. I didn't want to resurrect it, but I've been using the Libre for a couple of days now (mum ordered it for my Christmas present, there was a LONG waiting list so finally came ). Comments on the old thread focused quite a bit on how it's a step down from current CGM devices. For me, there are quite a lot of pros: 1. No transmitter cost, reader is cheap and has a 3 year warranty. AND is a meter too, so no need to carry loads of things around. 2. It's advertised to replace fingersticks. Hopefully this will be true for me once I'm confident on the accuracy. 3. No need for calibration. This might not be a big deal to organised people with stable BG levels, but I'm not that organised so used to end up with several hours where I forgot to calibrate and thus had no data, or would have to calibrate at the wrong time and got crazy data, or calibrated after putting pressure on the sensor (i.e. during a false low) and then all my readings got falsely high. Being able to just do it without calibration is a big deal. 4. THE PRICE. Sensors for the Enlite are £60 for 6 days; I rarely had any luck extending that. Libre sensors are £48 and last 14 days (they replace if not), so that makes the Libre less than half the price. Which is awesome because a) I might actually be able to use it and b) the NHS over here might actually fund it. 5. The adhesive situation seems amazing. It's just stuck on, no extra tape required. It's so flat I don't think it will be pulled off by accident. 6. Lack of alarms is a disadvantage, but also sort of good. The MM alarms are so quiet they will wake my girlfriend but not me, which is very annoying for her as they go off all night sometimes because of false lows. I often found myself just turning the alarms off and looking at the thing periodically, which is basically what I'm doing with this. It feels less obtrusive to me to scan when I want than to have it shoved in my face all the time, lol. So basically I think it is good for some people who aren't suited to CGM or who can't afford it. I think I'd prefer a CGM, if it had the same sensor, price and display screen! But I think I prefer this to the Enlite which is my only other real option, mostly because of the fact that I can actually afford to use it. I know it's not available in the US (or Canada?) but if anyone has any experiences to share that would be great. I'm currently deciding if I can afford the thing full-time.
