Well, we finally got a Freestyle Libre for my son. He’s had it on for 5 days so far and we have been testing his blood sugar by finger poke and the interstitial fluid by scanning. There are times the readings can be off by a few numbers and the rest of the day, there are 10 to 40 point gaps in the readings. This is new technology to us, we’re coming up on his 9 year diaversary (he’s 10), and I am just as confused now as I was then.
I’ve tried googling but just keep coming up with medical jargon that is beyond what my brain wants to accept reading (ie: really big technical words). So, any help would be much appreciated.
I know this makes me sound like I’m stupid but I swear I’m not. I’m just a lost mom trying to figure this out.
