The Freestyle IS supposed to replace fingersticks. But the graph presented suggests that this may not always be the case. Still, the FDA and government agencies around the world have approved the Freestyle as being accurate?
But as I said, even if that’s not the case, I want one. Yes, you would be double-testing, but ONLY at times when you were getting the double-arrow up or down. For me, that would not be frequent. YDMV!
In Europe, some 50,000 users were found to have read the Libre more frequently than they had with their meters AND their A1c’s were improved.
I do understand that some users will need the added features of the Dexcom, but I think there is a place for the Freestyle as well. And I think we will see improvements in both devices, as they go mainstream.
