Don't think anyone, once they've started using CGM, thinks they aren't!
Yay got my libre on its way finally x
OMG! It's DISPATCHED!!!! This is better than CHRISTMAS!
I seem to be getting a large spike around an hour after eating, would this be due to the time I'm taking insulin? Not too sure how to correct considering it falls itself a short while after.
You are discovering the same issue that many of us found re fast acting insulin. It takes a lot longer to have an effect than we are told. Most of us have found that injecting 20mins to half an hour prior to eating helps to reduce that spike, as the insulin kicks in as the food is taking effect. This you get a flatter line.
You could try injecting a bit earlier - the fall is your insulin acting a bit later than your food. Think of it as 2 graphs - insulin action and glucose action - and you want them to match, so they cancel each other out.
Thank you. I guess it's going to be a lot of trial and error, it shot up to 15~ calming down again yesterday and now it's slowly creeping past 9.
That's one advantage of the libre! I just wish there were a closer correlation wih my other meter.
Some sensors are quite accurate (my last one was) but it can be a bit of a lottery.
My first measure on today's new sensor was Libre: 5.8, Blood: 5.7 - hope that's a good sign.
received my libre the other day and find it really interesting, its usually not far of my wavesense jazz readings at mealtimes. Have noticed that 2hours after eating/injecting the readings are slightly different but as one reading is blood glucose and the other isn't it doesn't bother me. Have found that the readings don't differ any more than when I try different meters at the same time.
People who were "picked" not dispatched, did you get your new libres in the end? I am without following a spate of failures and I fear mine will never arrive
I got mine on Monday
My sensors are still being listed as "picked", it's been 6 days since I ordered(or 4 working days) so I'm not too concerned at the moment.
Same - mine were ordered on Thursday last week.
I was hoping to have them soon, though as I'm racing Fri/Sat/Sun and am currently sensorless...
Mine tends to be within .2 difference of a morning but they can't make its mind up. Never been more than 1.4 out though which is good.
Being a lottery isn't good Rob, has there been any updates on how they are dealing with the problems that users have experienced?.
I've not seen any feedback. Generally they are very useful and the 4 erratic sensors I've had were replaced by Abbott.
On the arrival period for sensor orders, I placed an order on the 7th and it arrived on 15th. The time taken now seems to have increased.
Ta. That's not far off 3-5 wds, I guess, so still within tolerance.
I found this when started using li re. Even if u dont scan it is recordedon a graph.
Depending on readings before meal. I usually do the following to prevent spikes - If its within range then inject ~15-20 mins before food; if its low then immediately before or during the meal; if higher than target range than up to 30 mins before food.
