    Hi everyone,

    I’m thinking of purchasing a CGM, but I’m not sure which would be best to get between the Libre or Dexcom. Can anyone with these recommend/suggest please?

    If you are paying for it yourself, Dexcom is the better al rounder. I use the libre, but that's because I get it on the NHS.

    I have both... For me libre is not very accurate and unless you are in a country that has libre2 then you will not get low/high alerts from libre without add on devices

    Dexcom is more accurate has alerts etc but costs more
