Prescription CGMs. How do they compare? Coming soon….

I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on all three of the devices that will soon be available on prescription in England & Wales.

The Dexcom One, kindly provided by Dexcom for this test, ahead of it being directly available, the Libre2 and the Aidex (paid for rather than on prescription).

I’ll be looking at:

  • What’s in the box
  • Application
  • Wear
  • The apps
  • The analysis tools
  • The data

There will be the usual data collection, using collection points at 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19 and 21 hours, plus specifically, if any sensor alerts low or alerts for an upcoming low, testing at that alert.

Hopefully the n=1 data will give an impression of what each of them is like to live with as well as how they compare to fingersticks.

Oh, and I’ll be running the Dexcom G6 alongside to provide the datum, just because…

If there’s anything you want to know, put it in the comments box below.

Keep your eyes peeled!
