THE CAT'S MIAO

Feline like turning your Libre sensor into a CGM? We take a brief look

at the Miao Miao smart reader. Purrfect. By Sue Marshall.

P

roduced in China by

the Shanghai Yuan

Yuan Qing information

Technology Co Ltd,

MiaoMiao is a 'smart

reader' that sits on top of a Libre sensor

and sends readings to a smartphone or

watch every five minutes.

Type 1 diabetic Andrew Borrett uses

MiaoMiao and also sells the product from

his website, www.mypump.co.uk, which

he has been running for about 13 years.

He explains, "MiaoMiao is a smart reader,

when you pop it on to a FreeStyle Libre

sensor it turns that into a continuous

glucose monitor (CGM) by sending your

blood sugars to your phone or watch

every five minutes. It means you no

longer have to 'swipe' your Libre to get

the information off it, you don't really have

to do anything at all, just check your data

on your device."

MiaoMiao products include MiaoMiao1

and MiaoMiao2 smart readers, and the

Tomato mobile app to show the glucose

data and receiving alerts. MiaoMiao2

is slimmer and lighter and has better

connectivity than MiaoMiao1 and is easier

to attach with FreeStyle Libre sensors. It

replaces the MiaoMiao 1.

MiaoMiao1 costs £130, MiaoMiao2

nearer £160 plus £7.99 for a charging

cable, with an optional holder (about £12)

and double-side stickers (under £1 for

a sheet of eight). Costs quoted here are

converted from prices in US dollars on the

company's own website, where there is a

choice of products and there is around a

£12 shipping charge.
