Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System

 

The FreeStyle Libre System is a revolutionary way of glucose monitoring. It eliminates the need for routine finger pricks1 by monitoring glucose levels using a sensor worn on the back of the upper arm.

With every painless2 scan the FreeStyle Libre reader or FreeStyle LibreLink app, displays the current glucose reading, the latest 8 hours of continuous glucose data and a trend arrow3 showing if glucose levels are going up, down, or changing slowly. It also presents a range of reports to allow you to easily interpret your data and help make more informed management decisions.

Simulated data for illustrative purposes only. Not real patient or data.
