Freestyle Libre Sensor is an easy-to-use sensor for testing blood sugar levels for those with diabetes. Instead of the more traditional blood testing method, the Libre doesn’t require any finger pricking to draw blood and instead, the sensor sits on the back of the arm where it can easily be scanned to give you a reading. It can be used for up to 14 days.
How does the sensor work?
The sensor works by placing the Freestyle Libre Reader (sold separately) or a compatible smartphone device (with freestyle Libre app) over the sensor which gives off a reading.
How to remove the Sensor?
To remove the sensor, use an adhesive remover or use a baby oil such as Johnson’s baby oil to help remove the sensor
