Applying the libre sensor

Unlike many things in life, applying the libre sensor is in fact just as easy as Abbot lead you to believe, it’s as easy as 1…2…3…

In the sensor box there are 3 things; the actual sensor, the sensor applicator and an alcohol wipe.  Firstly, take these out of the box and clean the area in which you are going to apply the sensor with the alcohol wipe.

The second step is to open the sensor and the applicator before lining up the markers on each element and loading the applicator with the sensor.

Once the applicator is loaded, place it on the skin in the chosen area and simply press down.  The needle will insert the sensor before quickly retracting back in to the applicator and the sensor will then be attached to your arm/leg.

That’s it….told you it was easy (and completely painless btw!)

If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to try a Freestyle Libre, I would wholeheartedly recommend it – it truly is a game changer!
