Does anyone (Stateside) have the Flash Libre glucose monitor? The one with the censor on your arm that you just scan? They got approved by the FDA in the US over a month ago but I can’t find a pharmacy that sells it.

I can’t afford a CGM like DexCom since I’m a T2 with crappy insurance and don’t have enough lows to get an exemption. But, the Flash Libre might be affordable. Anyone have any thoughts? I had a low at the gym today and would have loved to just scan my arm instead of going to the locker room and poking.
