    Food and blood readings

    No apparently they are not continuous, they read periods of time. The Dexcom is a continuous monitor. I was continously reconnecting the monitor to the app.

    Food and blood readings

    I managed to get a free Free style Libre monitor and it surprised me how things affected my numbers. I’ve got another monitor and will use it bit later, but I think I may well decide to buy Dexcom as the Libre is a flash monitor and not a continuous GM.
