A patient visited us yesterday with what looked like a badge stuck on her upper arm. Further enquiry led me to understand that she was wearing a new blood glucose monitoring system called Freestyle-Libre. It was an extraordinary piece of equipment which had transformed her life living with type 1. At the moment, for anyone who is interested, they will need to self-fund (approx £100 month) but she told me there are hopes to get the product released on the NHS. So for any of you who has, or know someone else who has, diabetes, then I hope this link from the central diabetes website will be useful.
