    Interested in picking up a Libre but its currently not released in the US and from what I have read the US version will not have a monitor and will only be scanned by doctors. So what would be my best route to picking one up? Ebay has the prices sky high.

    Cannot answer your question directly @Specsquee but other forum members in the US are using Dexcom products, - have you looked at these?

    I have but cost and simplicity has moved me towards being interested in the Libre.
