  1. Has anyone experienced pain in the arm were the freestyle libre sensor is or has been. I have started to experience a sharp pain now and again in both arms even when the sensor is not on the arm in question
  2. i visited my dentist yesterday as I was considering having two teeth implanted. Well once again diabetes has added to the risks of complications and risk of the implants being unsuccessful unless my diabetes is under good control. With my latest hb1c being 73 it’s not a risk I want to take as the healing with anything takes a lot longer. Has anyone else had any experience with implants and diabetes
