    Love

    I actually have been a type 1 diabetic since I was 7 years old, I am now 25 and work for a family practice that deals with a lot of type 2 and type 1 diabetics. I have showed a lot of patients this product after I tested it out myself, and the doctors I work for have written a lot prescriptions for this item and have actually had me come into the room with them and the patient to inform them and show them how this product works. The doctors I work for have told me to contact the company for more information on insurance coverage, drug rep information to report back to patients and even becoming either a sponsor or something involved in this company because I truly do believe this will make any diabetics life easier as it has made mine. I work for a very busy practice and am very forgetful, this monitor has made my life that much easier and my Hemoglobin A1C come down from 9.2 to 7.8 within 3 months (this glucose monitor has a reminder setting that will alarm you within 1-2 hours to retest your blood sugar once you apply that setting) I highly recommend this product and can honestly say it has made managing my type 1 diabetes’s more reasonable.


  • Best thing so far for glucose monitoring

    I have been type 1 for 10 years and have to say that this app allows me freedom in ways I have not seen anywhere else so far. Instead of manually poking my finger for a blood reading, the scanning is painless, easy and allows notes for food, insulin, etc.. I have two constructive criticisms. The 12 hours that I am without reading during scanning makes me anxious. As funny as it sounds, I have come to love seeing the entire readings as it brings a new level of insight to managing my BS. So if there is a way to start syncing a new sensor 12 hours prior to the existing one expiring to have no gap in readings that would be great. The second suggestion is that I would love to see an Apple Watch app that displayed the BS reading when scanning. I have never used a dexcom or other continuous BS monitor as all of those are considered medical devices and is a different insurance deductible and is way too costly to obtain. The freestyle libre reader is great for me because it is considered a pharmacy benefit and is actually cheaper than buying a month worth of test strips for manual checking. Keep it up and keep innovating!

    FreeStyle Libre Not connecting to server on IPhone 8

    Update: My app is working now, after trying for at least 5 hours. I did call the help line and I too was given the “server down” story. I don’t believe the server storyline. I believe the server is just fine. I believe there are too many users trying to long in/register at the same time, and after a predetermined period of time/tries, it times out. I must commend Abbott for this absolutely terrific system. I drive a lot, and testing my sugar levels while driving is dangerous. With the sensor and my iPhone, I worry no more. Way to go Abbott! * (one star) I just purchased two sensors. Unfortunately, the FreeStyle Libre App encounters an “Error communicating with server” immediately upon opening. It’s accompanied by a small rectangular box with the words “try again.” I tried reconnecting many many times to no avail. Therefore, the app gets one star. If there were a -0 star, I’d be more the happy to select it.
