"I was introduced to the FreeStyle Libre system by my diabetes nurse because I was struggling with fingerstick tests making my hands so sore and causing flare-ups. I really was at a point where I was truly fed up with diabetes. Every time I'd go to an appointment, I'd be given my results, and try as I might, I could never improve them. But FreeStyle Libre made me think more about what I was eating and how/when to take insulin. I was more than proud of myself and grateful I'd been given the chance to help my control! It's also great when I speak with my diabetes nurse and she can see what's going on and say you're doing okay! It's much better than looking at readings I've written down and not knowing what goes on in-between… I'm a florist, so I meet a lot of people in our shop. My FreeStyle Libre sensor ignited so many conversations with customers I've known for a long time, but we never knew each other had T1. It made me make connections and talk about my diabetes to complete strangers!"
