As noted here:
I purchased an Abbott FreeStyle Libre continuous glucose monitor today at my local London Drugs. I selected this item because the initial cost is fairly low ($55 for the reader device) and I don’t have to poke holes or donate blood. I’ve set up a free account at LibreView which will enable me to upload data from the reader. Not sure yet what exactly I’ll do with the data, but I don’t want to leave it on the handheld device, since storage capacity is limited. The device connects to my computer via a USB cable, which also doubles as the cable for charging the reader.
My initial plan is simply to apply the sensor patch, read the data every 8 hours, upload the data to LibreView. The sensor patches are expensive $100 a pop and last only 14 days. So I intend to monitor glucose only from ‘time to time’. To be determined.
When I’ve got data, I will post it here. Stay tuned.
