    I do not think that such a thing exists. Do you mean the Freestyle Libre?

    Hi there - I think, from memory, @donnellysdogs has used the guardian/elite sensor, so she may have some useful insight.

    @donnellysdogs - Apologies if my memory is even more goldfish-like than usual (Hope you're well.) :)

    Enlite sensor officially last 6. Days but can be restarted by carefully disconnecting transmitter and recharging then reconnect ing and starting as new sensor which can extend it by 4-10 days you can also recharge the transmitter before reconnecting
