KNOW HOW TO MAKE MORE INFORMED DECISIONS ABOUT FOOD AND EXERCISE
Get ready to make fingersticks* a thing of the past!
Want to trade in routine fingersticks* for continuous data points?
Use the handheld reader or smartphone‡ to scan the sensor as often as you like, even through clothing.§
The Sensor Glucose Readings screen appears after you use the reader or smartphone‡ to scan your sensor. Your reading includes your current glucose reading, a glucose trend arrow indicating which way your glucose is headed, and a graph showing your 8 hour glucose history.
A graph showing the pattern and variability of your sensor glucose over a typical day. The thick black line shows the midpoint of your glucose readings. The gray shading represents a range of your sensor readings.
Note: Daily Patterns needs at least 5 days of glucose data.
This view provides information about the number of low glucose events measured by your sensor. The total number of events is displayed above the graph. The bar graph displays the low glucose events in four different 6-hour periods of the day. Use the arrows to view your glucose data collected over the last 7, 14, 30, or 90 days. Low glucose events are recorded when glucose readings are lower than 70 mg/dL for longer than 15 minutes.
Time In Target
Shows the percentage of time your sensor readings were above, below, and within your target glucose range.**
If your glucose reading is rapidly changing, below 70 mg/dL or projected to be below 70 mg/dL, or if there is no glucose number or trend arrow, you will see a visual alert, the Check Blood Glucose symbol. When you see this symbol, do a blood glucose test before making treatment decisions.

¶Sensor is water-resistant in up to 1 meter (3 feet) of water. Do not immerse longer than 30 minutes.
#Based on the sensor being replaced once every 14 days, and scanned at least once every 8 hours.
**Default range is 70-180 mg/dL. Consult with a healthcare professional on individual target glucose range.
††Choose a site that is at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) away from an insulin injection site.
‡‡CAUTION: The Sensor Pack and Sensor Applicator have the same sensor code. The sensor codes should be checked to ensure they match before using Sensor Pack and Sensor Applicator. Do not use Sensor Packs and Sensor Applicators with different Sensor codes together as this will result in incorrect glucose readings.
§§Do NOT use if the Sensor Pack or the Sensor Applicator seem to be damaged or already opened. Do NOT use if past expiration date.
ǁǁThe Sensor Applicator contains a needle. Do not touch inside the Sensor Applicator or put it back into the Sensor Pack.
¶¶Do not push down on the Sensor Applicator until placed over prepared site to prevent unintended results or injury.
##Applying the Sensor may cause bruising or bleeding. If there is bleeding that does not stop, remove the Sensor, and apply a new one at a different site.

Indications and Important Safety Information
FreeStyle Libre 14 day system: The FreeStyle Libre 14 day Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device indicated for the management of diabetes in persons age 18 and older. It is designed to replace blood glucose testing for diabetes treatment decisions. The System detects trends and tracks patterns aiding in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long-term therapy adjustments. Interpretation of the System readings should be based on the glucose trends and several sequential readings over time. The System is intended for single patient use and requires a prescription.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment.
WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS: Do not ignore symptoms that may be due to low or high blood glucose, hypoglycemic unawareness, or dehydration. Check sensor glucose readings with a blood glucose meter when Check Blood Glucose symbol appears, when symptoms do not match system readings, or when readings are suspected to be inaccurate. The FreeStyle Libre 14 day system does not have alarms unless the sensor is scanned, and the system contains small parts that may be dangerous if swallowed. The FreeStyle Libre 14 day system is not approved for pregnant women, persons on dialysis, or critically-ill population. Sensor placement is not approved for sites other than the back of the arm and standard precautions for transmission of blood borne pathogens should be taken. The built-in blood glucose meter is not for use on dehydrated, hypotensive, in shock, hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar state, with or without ketosis, neonates, critically-ill patients, or for diagnosis or screening of diabetes. When using FreeStyle LibreLink app, access to a blood glucose monitoring system is required as the app does not provide one. Review all product information before use or contact Abbott Toll Free (855-632-8658) (or visit www.freestylelibre.us) for detailed indications for use and safety information. For full indications for use and safety information, see more here.
FreeStyle Libre 2 system: The FreeStyle Libre 2 Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device with real time alarms capability indicated for the management of diabetes in persons age 4 and older.*
WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS*: The System must not be used with automated insulin dosing (AID) systems, including closed loop and insulin suspend systems. Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment. Do not take high doses of vitamin C (more than 500 mg per day), as this may falsely raise your Sensor readings. Failure to use the System according to the instructions for use may result in missing a severe low blood glucose or high blood glucose event and/or making a treatment decision that may result in injury. If glucose alarms and readings from the System do not match symptoms or expectations, use a fingerstick blood glucose value to make diabetes treatment decisions. Seek medical attention when appropriate and contact Abbott Toll Free (855-632-8658) or visit * www.freestylelibre.us for detailed indications for use and safety information.
*Please refer to www.freestylelibre.us for the indications and important safety information.
