The days of routine glucose testing with lancets, test strips and blood are over2.

Welcome to flash glucose monitoring!

Why choose the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System?

Swim, shower or exercise — the FreeStyle Libre system is designed to be water-resistant and worn while bathing, showering, swimming5 and exercising

Convenient

A small sensor automatically measures and continuously stores glucose readings day and night3

User-friendly

With every scan you get your current glucose reading, the last 8 hours of glucose data and an arrow showing the direction your glucose is heading.

Discreet

Glucose readings with a painless 1 second scan even through clothing4

1 Scanning the sensor to obtain glucose values does not require lancets.
2 A finger prick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels, or if hypoglycemia or impending hypoglycemia is reported or the symptoms do not match the system readings.
3 For a complete glycaemic picture scan once every 8 hours.
4 The reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1cm to 4cm of the sensor.
5 Sensor is water-resistant in up to 1 meter (3 feet) of water for a maximum of 30 minutes.

  • Requires no finger prick calibration Eliminates painful finger pricks needed for calibration
  • Water-resistant11You can lead an active lifestyle
 
The FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System is indicated for measuring interstitial fluid glucose levels in people (age 4 and older) with diabetes mellitus. The indication for children (age 4 - 17) is limited to those who are supervised by a caregiver who is at least 18 years of age.
9  The FreeStyle Libre system liberates you from the hassles of glucose monitoring. In a study conducted by Abbott Diabetes Care, 95.7 % of patients surveyed (n=30) agreed that the FreeStyle Libre system reduces the hassles of glucose monitoring.
10  The reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1cm to 4cm of the sensor.
11  Sensor is water-resistant in up to 1 metre (3 feet) of water for a maximum of 30 minutes.

13 To get a complete glycaemic picture over the last three months, the sensor must be replaced every fourteen days and the sensor must be scanned at least once every eight hours.

Using FreeStyle Libre Software, you can gain a deeper understanding of glucose patterns and variability

The Ambulatory Glucose Profile summarises glucose data into percentiles 14 throughout the day.

It’s a snapshot of a typical day revealing hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia trends.

The stoplight chart is designed to help you quickly and easily focus on potential trouble spots15 (red and yellow stoplights)

14  10th, 25th, 50th (median), 75th, and 90th percentiles. A percentile is the value below which a certain percent of observations falls; e.g., the 25th to 75th percentile shows where the middle 50% of the observed glucose results may be found.
