    So I had a 14 days libre trial which i was put forward for by my consultant. Thing is I haven't heard anything from my team for over 2 months,feel like I should get in touch but don t want to be a pest. Tbh when my consultant put me forward for the trial i was kinda wondering what happens after the trial and what it do they look for after the trial ends,anyone with any info would be much appreciated.

    What was the context for the trial? Was it just to help you adjust dosage or was it a trial with the aim to give you libre on on-going prescription?

    What we're your thoughts of libre?

    I currently buy my own libre but have been told I can get it on an ongoing prescription once I complete DAFNE.

    I think the Libre trial is specific to your CCG.
    In your position, I would not worry about being a pest after a month of no contact.
    My DSN ran my DAFNE course so you may see her next week and get a chance to ask about Libre.
