I got it!
I got a prescription for the FreeStyle Libre from my doctor.
I went to the pharmacy and paid my $200 for the sensors and reader.
Here is what I got:
FreeStyle Libre sensor box
FreeStyle Libre Reader
So, after all that research I did not notice until now that the FreeStyle Libre is a
FLASH Glucose Monitoring System. (FGM)
Makes sense after reading up on the CGM's that the Libre isn't considered a
continuous glucose monitoring system.
The FGM Difference
The Libre cannot be used with an insulin pump.
The Libre does not have alarms for highs or lows.
The Libre Reader must be scanned for the glucose number to be displayed.
Both take the glucose measurement from interstitial fluid glucose levels in real time.
Both provide patterns.
Both provide data for making decisions.
I am excited to try the Libre out.
Hope this research helped you like it did me!
