Now you can check your glucose with a painless5 one-second scan.
As easy as 1, 2, 3
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 hypoglycaemia or impending hypoglycaemia is reported by the system or when symptoms do not match the system readings.
3. A caregiver at least 18 years old is responsible for supervising, managing, and assisting the child in using the FreeStyle Libre system and interpreting its readings.
4. Edge, Julie., et al. An alternative sensor-based method for glucose monitoring in children and young people with diabetes. Archives of Disease in Childhood 102.6 (2017): 543-549.
5. Most people did not feel any discomfort under the skin while wearing the FreeStyle Libre sensor. In a study conducted by Abbott Diabetes Care, 93.4% of patients surveyed (n=30) strongly agree or agree that while wearing the sensor, they did not feel any discomfort under their skin. [29 persons have finished the study; 1 person terminated the study after 3 days due to skin irritations in the area where the sensor touched the skin].
6. The FreeStyle Libre reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1cm to 4cm of the sensor, even through clothing.
7. For a complete glycaemic picture, scan once every 8 hours.
