  1. Hi guys, I just received the freestyle libre GCM sensor which I installed on my arm. It's from abbot and every nation has its official site. Pros: reasonable price, free trial sensor in some areas, duration of sensor 14 days, convenient to wear. Cons: unlike the Dexcom GCM, it needs to be scanned every time a reading is desired. I started monitoring glucose concentration just before dinner: 89 mg/dL. Now I'm having lowcarb dinners, according to the observations that glucose tolerance follow a circadian rythm. After a while (50-60 minutes) glucose peaked at 122, then quickly down to 104 after 110 minutes. I wonder what caused that peak since there were very little carbs in the meal (spinach and cherry tomatoes, nonfat cottage cheese 150 gr, nuts and seeds 60 grams. The trend is consistent with a limited error. Data do not fluctuate wildly. I'm going to see when the values reach the background again and what the fasting value is going to be tomorrow. Then the behaviour in the presence of carbs, in the morning and after lunch.
