    I am on my 58th sensor and have tracked every reading and injection of insulin. I have compiled pages of percentages of accuracy and tallies of trends.

    With my experience of the percent-error that the sensors have VS test strips, I would never trust an automated injection system based on sensor data alone. I have seen many readings as high as 120% error and base my injections on the test strip reading far more often that the meter. A recent trend is that the meter reading and the test strip readings are in sync for the first week with reasonable results then they trend to be grossly out after a week of reading.

    Personally, I wouldn’t trust Libre as is to run a closed automated system, maybe it was just my body chemistry it didn’t agree with. However, Dexcom works just fine or me, and I happily run my DIY artificial pancreas using its data, which I do trust.
