    Hello from Saskatchewan :),

    Does anyone use the freestyle libre 3 system for their CGM? I have used the original Freestyle Libre CGM but had to discontinue after about 14 months because of a hideous and painful allergic reaction to the adhesive. I'm wondering if Abbott has changed the formulation of the sensor adhesive but I haven't found anything out here in Canuckistan!

    Thank you for the quick reply:). I read the article in the link and I'm feeling very encouraged. I loved the Libre 1 system until the sensitivity to the cyanoacrylate based adhesive became too hard to handle. I'm looking forward to the time it shows up here in Saskatchewan (Canada lags about 9 months behind the UK when it comes to releasing new kit.)
