Scan the Sensor for Glucose Reading in 1 second
For use with FreeStyle Libre Sensor
Scanning the sensor to obtain glucose values does not require lancets
2A 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.
3For a complete glycemic 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.
4The reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1cm to 4cm of the sensor, even through clothing.

13To 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
14Most 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. [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.] Data on file.15 The indication for children (aged 4-17) is limited to those who are supervised by a caregiver who is at least 18 years of age. The caregiver is responsible for managing or assisting the child to manage the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System and also for interpreting or assisting the child to interpret FreeStyle Libre readings
