Free Style Libre

  1. Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM):
    • The FreeStyle Libre is a CGM system designed to help people with diabetes monitor their glucose levels continuously throughout the day and night. It provides real-time information about glucose trends.
  2. Sensor Technology:
    • The system consists of a small, disposable sensor that is inserted just beneath the skin. The sensor measures glucose levels in the interstitial fluid, providing a representation of blood glucose levels.
  3. Flash Glucose Monitoring:
    • Unlike traditional glucose monitoring systems that require fingerstick blood samples, the FreeStyle Libre uses flash glucose monitoring. Users can obtain glucose readings by scanning the sensor with a reader or a compatible smartphone.
  4. Reader or Smartphone App:
    • The FreeStyle Libre system includes a handheld reader or a mobile app that works with compatible smartphones. Scanning the sensor with the reader or app provides information about current glucose levels, trends, and historical data.
  5. No Calibration Required:
    • Unlike some other CGM systems, the FreeStyle Libre does not require routine fingerstick calibration. However, users may still need to calibrate the system occasionally for accuracy.
  6. Data Storage and Trends:
    • The system stores glucose data, allowing users and healthcare providers to review patterns, trends, and time in range over specific periods.
  7. Water-Resistant:
    • The sensor is designed to be water-resistant, allowing users to wear it while showering or swimming within certain limitations.
  8. 14-Day Wear:
    • Each sensor is designed for wear for up to 14 days, after which it needs to be replaced with a new sensor.
  9. Alarm Settings:
    • Users can set up alarms to receive notifications if glucose levels are above or below specified thresholds.
  10. Ease of Use:
    • The FreeStyle Libre system is known for its ease of use, eliminating the need for frequent fingersticks and providing a more continuous and convenient way to monitor glucose levels.
