Libre is a glucose sensor which you apply to the back of your arm and can scan with a smartphone. These are normally only available on prescription for all individuals with Type 1 Diabetes but Abbott who produce the device are running a 2 week free trial whereby anyone with Diabetes who has not had a sensor before can get access to one sensor.
