What is Time in Range? (TIR)

Time in range (TIR) is a measure of time you spend in the target glucose range; the shaded area on your FreeStyle LibreLink App*, is known as Time in Target. FreeStyle Libre automatically calculates the percentage of time you spend in, above and below the target range. Increasing your TIR will have a direct impact on reducing your HbA1c3
