    Effectively managing hypos

    I bought a FreeStyle Libre this week and have been using it several times a day. I compared it with my blood glucose monitor readings and found it to be off by between 1-2.6 mmol/L each time which is a lot more than I expected. The sensor is on my arm as recommended.
