In mid September I started using Freestyle Libre CGM instead of the Dexcom G5 CGM it was just released in Canada in mid September and has been approved by our government (Health Canada) to use as tool to figure out my insulin dosage only the second CGM to get this approval, there are only three differences I can see between the 2 CGMs and they are Dexcom sensor last 7 days Libre lasts 14 days, Dexcom has a alarm when you are going down Libre doesn't and cost Libre is a lot cheaper for the sensors, I love the fact of no more finger pricks after 45 years yeahplus I am testing close to 15 times a day instead of 4 or 5 times, thought you might be interested
