    Feel lucky I’ve been selected to use the Libre chip.

    Looking forward to much less finger pricking and seeing how much more exercise I can do.

    In the past i’d test at hour intervals and guesstimate it according to work rate, when first diagnosed I had to check every 15mins during exercise.

    Now (as long as it stays on) just a quick scan, don’t even have to stop pedalling.

    Got a 24hr cycle event lined up in The Nurburgring later this year and this kit will hopefully make getting round more manageable.

    :)
