The FreeStyle Libre 2 System is a new way for people with diabetes to check their sugar levels.
Sugar comes from the food we eat and our bodies turn it into energy using something called ‘insulin’. People with diabetes have to check their sugar levels and inject the right amount of insulin to deal with it.
They check their sugar levels by pricking their finger and testing their blood.
The FreeStyle Libre 2 System can check your sugar levels without a finger prick test. Instead it uses a sensor on your body, on the back of your upper arm.
FreeStyle have lots of easy read material which is designed for people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes who use insulin and have a learning disability, and for their families and carers.
The resources are designed to help people when they start using the FreeStyle Libre system or the FreeStyle Libre 2 system.
