Hi everyone! I'm Sam from DRWF and I'm joining this forum to provide some handy tips and support for those who need it! I've had type 1 diabetes for about 8 years and I now work for DRWF's digital team. Looking forward to discussions in the future and getting some advice for myself too.

Hi and welcome to the group, SamDRWF. Thank you for introducing yourself to everyone.😀👍

Do you use a CGM to help with blood sugar control? I’ve been using a CGM for 7 years, now. I also have a low carb. high protein and gluten free diet. The gluten free diet is for gluten/wheat insensitivity issues.

Hi! Yes, I just started using a CGM last night! I've got the Libre 2 and I'm finding it very useful so far. In my opinion it's a big upgrade on routine finger pricks throughout the day!

This is good to hear. What are the numbers from the Libre? We’re you told to test for a few days to see if the numbers were close together?😀

Yeah I've continued doing a few finger pricks throughout the day to see how the number compare, and they are pretty close. Usually within 0.2-0.4 mmol of each other.

What do the numbers convert to for mg/dl?😀
