    Interested to see other people’s “time in target reading” on the freestyle libre!

    I’m type 2 currently not on medication or insulin. If this is not what your looking for then feel free to ignore.

    Over the past few weeks it has been 68%, but before that I was on a bit of trouble, but with tweaks and talking to my DSN has helped.

    I've been using the libre for just short of 24 hours, I had a carb free dinner last night and 30g carbs, raisins for lunch.
    Not looking good... Screenshot_20191115-143526.jpeg

    Not eating much of anything but have lots of shoulder pain so on painkillers. This or sleep deprivation has me using 25%+ basal and bolus insulin yet still bumbling along in the orange zone 35% and red zone 52%.

    Grrr.... am going for an HBA1c in January in order to justify keeping the prescription for FSL so let's hope things improve very soon! Prior to this my hba1c had decreased to 6.9 from 7.4 so this is annoying.

    My app target is set at 3.9-9, the last 7 days shows 83% in target and 17% in 9.1-13.3 range, 90 days shows 83% in target, 16% in 9.1-13.3 range and 1% below 3.9 xx

    My target is set to 4.5-8.5 (I think that's what the default must've been), but I only get to about 50-55%, its very variable though some days I can get 65-83%, other days I will get 25%! (those days are the days it just wont drop below 12 no matter what you do and when it comes to 4pm I don't want to take anymore insulin cos I know I'll be driving home soon and don't want it to suddenly drop like a rock - which it sometimes has a tendancy to do).

    Note: despite the fact that 50% probably isn't very good , it probably a lot better than it was pre-libre, and my HbA1c is now between 43 and 48.

    This is mine - I’ve been on the libre for maybe 6 months? Current a1c is 50.

    My report would say "could do better", a few to many lows <3.9 but working on it....
