Freestyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system for type 1 and type 2 diabetes available on prescription

09 Nov 2017

The Freestyle Libre system is available on the NHS from 1 Nov 2017. This technology allows people with diabetes to  track their blood sugar levels without having to prick their fingers. The system automatically reads glucose levels through a  sensor approximately the size of a £2 coin that is worn on the back of the arm for up to 14 days, eliminating the need for routine finger pricks to measure glucose levels.
