Add Freestyle Libre Sensors to the LTI (Long term Illness) scheme
As some may be aware the Freestyle Libre is changing the way we manage our sugar levels now. This is a device that removes the need of invasive finger pricking in place of a sensor that is worn in the back of your upper arm. You then use the device to monitor your blood sugars as often as you like.
The idea behind this petition is to gather names of diabetics in Ireland that wish to see the Libre added to the LTI scheme making the management of our condition easier. This will also save on the need to dispose of lancets and other blood sugar tests strips.
Please sign the position that will be sent onto Abbott Diabetes Care Inc and the HSE to push for this product to be added to the LTI Scheme.
