        I’m not on the pump mate, I still inject

        It’s a difficult one though, I’m not sure I can help I’m sorry! Maybe put it on the forum? I bet others have been in a similar situation as you

        Is the libra good? I’m still old school in the fact I still prick my finger haha

        My hba1c is always good, classed as “non diabetic” which is nice aha

        How has your experience been with it? I’m tempted to get a Libra
