The Freestyle Libre 2 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 in order to give you a reading.

A clearer picture of glucose control
FreeStyle Libre 2 sensors monitor your glucose levels day and night. Each scan shows your current reading, the last eight hours, and a trend arrow of which direction your glucose is heading. It also has optional glucose alarms to warn you when your glucose is too high or too low.
How does the Freestyle Libre 2 Sensor work?
This sensor works by placing the Freestyle Libre Reader (sold separately) over the sensor which gives off a reading. It works similar to how a contactless credit/debit card works, with a simple connection in order to confirm the purchase.

- Place the applicator over where you want the sensor to go and push down firmly in order to apply the sensor to the skin. Now the sensor should stick to the skin.
