The FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a glucose monitoring device indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns in persons aged 18 and older with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. Health professionals and consumers should be aware about the limitations of available scientific evidence for use of this device in any other groups of patients who require diabetes management.

  • †. Scanning the sensor to obtain glucose values does not require lancets
  • 1. 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.
  • 2. For a complete glycaemic picture, scan once every 8 hours. The FreeStyle Libre software, designed to be used in conjunction with FreeStyle Libre reader and sensor provides a snapshot of glucose patterns and variability; for more information, see the Software page.
  • 3. Most people did not feel any discomfort under the skin while wearing the FreeStyle Libre sensor. In a 2013 US 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. Data on file.
  • 4. The reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1cm to 4cm of the sensor, even through clothing.
  • 5. Sensor is water-resistant in up to 1 metre (3 feet) of water for a maximum of 30 minutes.
