How does the FreeStyle Libre system work?

To obtain a glucose reading, simply perform a quick 1-second scan of the reader over the sensor.

This easy scan gives you more information than a blood glucose test without the need for routine finger pricks1. The FreeStyle Libre system also offers software to generate concise reports that provide a clear analysis of your glucose data.

 

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 hypoglycaemia or impending hypoglycaemia is reported by the system or when symptoms do not match the system readings.
