Event Description
Hypo hyper glycemic event; this is the second sensor out of 4 used total with the freestyle libre2 that has had major variances from an actual finger stick glucometer. I'm talking 100 points. My libre alarm went off telling me i was having high glucose. It read 265 my actual glucometer said 365 which i checked several times. I did a rescue dose of insulin and after a few hours my libre went off saying low glucose alert of 55 and my actual meter stated 103. Constantly getting error messages despite getting a new sensor. Another time yesterday the libre was reading 145 and my actual my actual meter registered at 74 and dropping which lead me to have a pretty bad hypo event because i didn't correct the low as it started trending down. This product has beyond disappointed me and could have lead to a life threatening event. I can't even explain my frustration. Fda safety report id# (b)(4).
