MORE TIME IN RANGE
=
BETTER GLUCOSE CONTROL

 
Keep your Glucose Steady, Tight, And in Range

 

 

The Time In Range is the percentage of your time that you spend within your target glucose range (70mg/dL -180mg/dL)

 

Here are different examples of Time in Range:

WHY IS TIME IN RANGE IMPORTANT?

Every 10% increase in the time you spend in the target range can lower your A1c by 0.8%1

Every extra hour in range has a positive impact on your glucose control2

Spending more “Time In Range” can reduce the development of long-term health complications3

Guidelines recommend spending at least 70% of your “Time In Range” (70-180 mg/dL)2,4

WHEN YOUR TIME IN RANGE INCREASES, YOUR A1c DECREASES

""

 

The FreeStyle Libre system automatically calculates the percentage of time you spend in, above, or below your target range.

This Time In Target report shows a person who spent 75% of their day in target glucose range.
