    I was diagnosed last year and I’ve been using the LibreLink without any issues. However, all of a sudden it isn’t reading my BS properly. It seems always to be higher than my actual level. Should I change my current patch? Any advice or guidance welcome

    What is the difference between the libre and fingerprick, and are you taking account of the time lag?

    It's worth ringing the Abbot helpline and they will probably replace the sensor for you. I had a sensor that kept reading a lot lower than it should. Abbot replaced it without any issue and sent a return envelope for the old one to be sent in.
