Images and simulated data for illustrative purposes only. Not real patient or data.
a. Scanning the sensor to obtain glucose levels does not require lancets.
b. Finger pricks are required if glucose readings do not match symptoms or expectations1.
c. For children aged 4-12, a caregiver at least 18 years old is responsible for supervising, managing, and assisting them in using the FreeStyle Libre system and interpreting its readings1.
d. In a study conducted by Abbott Diabetes Care, 99% of patients surveyed (n=123) agreed that the FreeStyle Libre system would reduce the hassles of glucose monitoring3.
e. In a study conducted by Abbott Diabetes Care, 92% of patients surveyed (n=119) patients agree that it was painless or almost painless to apply the sensor3.
f. Sensor is water-resistant in up to 1 meter (3 feet) of water. Do not immerse longer than 30 minutes. Not to be used above 10,000 feet1.
g. The reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1 cm to 4 cm of the sensor1.
h. The Glucose Trend Arrow may not always appear with your reading.
