where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hey! I am currently using the Dexcom G5 but i feel that its not very accurate. And the app crashes sometimes so there are no readings, or it could be a sensor issue. Is freestyle libre better?? Opinions please

Call tech support. They will make sure your app is up to date and ios is as well. Ours had issues at first but they helped us.

Thanks! How long can I keep the freestyle libre on for? For ex- the dexcom can be used for 21 days so it is cost effective. What about the freestyle libre? Thanks

Do you use the omnipod too? How do you see the Libre readings? How often do you need to calibrate it? Thanks
