    @Debandez Hi I just wondered if a libre is still a benefit as you are in remission?

    Does it help where FBG is concerned?

    I really don't need one. A finger prick would suffice and be a much cheaper option.

    That said here are the pluses for me
    1) no finger pricking
    2) estimated a1c which keeps me inline
    3) 24/7 graphs
    4) trends
    5) any new foods I can see the effects immediately, finger pricking doesn't give the whole story.
    6) I just love how much info it gives you
    7) not as accurate as pricking but so much more convenient
    8) slight delay by about 10 mins as intersitual fluid not blood measured

    Hope this helps
