How does it work?

To obtain a glucose reading, simply perform a quick, painless6 1-second scan of your reader over the FreeStyle Libre sensor.

This easy scan gives you more information without the need for finger pricking1,2.

How is it used?

The FreeStyle Libre sensor is water-resistant7 and can be worn while bathing, showering, swimming or exercising.

Glucose information at a glance

The FreeStyle Libre sensor continuously measures glucose every minute and saves the glucose data. Scan the sensor at least every 8 hours for a full glycemic profile. The below data is displayed after a typical 1-second scan of the FreeStyle Libre reader via the sensor:

  • Glucose trend arrow

    Easy to spot ups, downs and night-time lows and see which way and how quickly glucose levels are changing.

  • Current glucose reading

    You can get your current glucose reading by an easy scan of the FreeStyle Libre sensor.

  • Food and insulin notes

    Easy to add notes to track food, insulin use, exercise, and other events.

  • 8-hour glucose history

    Get the last 8 hours of glucose data.

How does flash glucose monitoring work?

Blood glucose meters take glucose readings from capillary blood with a finger prick. Flash glucose monitoring systems are different. Scanning the FreeStyle Libre sensor with a phone or the reader measures the glucose levels from the interstitial fluid, a thin layer of fluid that surrounds the cells of the tissues in your skin.

1. Scanning the sensor to obtain glucose levels does not require lancets.

2. Finger pricks are required if glucose readings do not match symptoms or expectations.

3. 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 readings.

4. 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 monitoring.

6. 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 sensor.

7. 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 feet.
