The Freestyle Libre is the newest FDA approved device to hit the USA market! I have seen so many of my European & Canadian followers using the Freestyle Libre for years now! I was always so intrigued and thought it could be the perfect glucose monitor for me. The second it was announced that it was approved in the United States, I immediately got in touch with Abbott to get my hands on this device! I was honored to be part of a group of influencers who received the Freestyle Libre before it hit the market! I was actually the first Latina in the United States to try it!
I've been using this device since November 2017 and I have fallen in LOVE. This device is exactly what I was looking for. Here is a list of my likes and dislikes for the Freestyle Libre.

This is my personal experience with the Freestyle Libre. Diabetes is not an easy disease but there are many devices on the market that can help with management. Please don't shame others for the devices they CHOOSE to use. We all have a choice when it comes to glucose monitors, meters, insulin brands, insulin pumps, injections and that is a beautiful thing! We can all choose what works for each individual! Hope you enjoyed this blog post! Also below are 2 videos about my experience with the Freestyle Libre and how I chose my insulin pump!
