Edinburgh Diabetes Centre's guide to gettting started and making the most of your flash sensor (Libre)

Another fantastic guide from Edinburgh diabetes centre. It walks you through using a flash monitor, and getting the most of it - what do those arrows actually mean, when and how should you react to them? Try this alongside their Libre quiz.

Excellent guide not only for those new to Flash Glucose Monitoring but a good refresher for those who have been using for a while. PWD may find it helpful that the maths has been done stating the expected fall in bg over a 15 or 30 minute period based on the arrows displayed. Similarly, offers suggestions for adapting meal doses based on insulin sensitivity factors and trend arrows at point of eating.
