Over the lockdown period and summertime we have worked on improvements to our Librebands, launched new products, published several new blogs and been active on social media. We’ve highlighted many of our initiatives below.
We have designed our own stickers to support our Libreband statements that are intended to encourage positive feelings when using and wearing the Libre sensor. A sticker will be included free in all orders. We hope you’ll display yours prominently!
Our website has a few exciting additional features now to assist you with purchasing from us. You can create an account by providing your email and assigning your own password. There’s also the option to favourite items and put them on your wishlist. Where you see a heart next to a product that you like just click this to add to your wishlist. And you can send this to social media or email. A useful way to provide a (not) subtle tip for gifts.
NEW PRODUCTS AND UPDATES
UPGRADES TO LIBREBAND
In response to high demand over the summer, we have invested in a new production process that improves the quality and durability of our Librebands. These are now manufactured from a nylon material, rather than 3D printed, which gives them added strength and a high-quality finish.
In addition, our straps have been modified to allow for a greater size range. New Librebands are available in small (20-30cm) and medium/large (25-40cm). There’s now a slider to adjust the strap to your fit and a Velcro tab to ensure the fitting is secure and allow for small adjustments.
LIBREBAND+MM2 and LIBREBAND+BLUCON
We are pleased to have launched our new products for those wearing a MiaoMiao2 or BluCon NightRider with the Libre sensor. These have a new design on the faceplate, the TriGrid, and are currently available in our popular 3 colours, magenta, orange and teal.
DEXBANDS FOR DEXCOM G6 SENSORS
We have also launched our Dexbands for Dexcom G6 sensors. There are currently 2 styles available in our popular 3 colours, magenta, orange and teal.
NEW COLOURS FOR LIBREBANDS
Librebands are now available in four colours; Magenta, Teal, Orange and Pewter. Take a look on our website to see these in our four styles; Heart, Type 01, 100% Diabetic and Wave.
We’ve published several new articles on our website and if you haven’t seen these yet I’ve provided an overview and links below.
LIBRE SENSOR WITH BUBBLE, MIAOMIAO AND BLUCON
If you’ve wondered about these devices, here’s our guide to help you understand the lingo, why you would want one and what you need to consider before purchasing such a device.

Wearing a transmitter with a FreeStyle Libre converts the sensor to full CGM. This table compares the devices available to use in the UK, MiaoMiao 2, Bubble and Blucon Nightrider. A copy of this table can be downloaded from the Love My Libre blog.
MEDICAL DEVICES AND AIRPORT SECURITY
A review of ‘Making airport security easier for people living with type 1 for people using medical devices’ from a presentation by Rachel Crawford, JDRF online Fusion Day 5 September 2020. The article describes a mother’s campaign to address problems when wearing an insulin pump (and devices) and airport security.
IDENTIFYING A HIDDEN DISABILITY
An initiative that can make life easier for those living with diabetes and indeed when wearing a Libre sensor or other medical device. The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower is aimed at those with a chronic condition such as diabetes and is recognised in many UK airports, entertainment venues and supermarkets.
