FreeStyle Libre: Flash glucose
Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre System is a glucose
measuring system that eliminates the need
for finger sticks or finger stick calibrations.
It measures glucose levels through a small
sensor that is applied to the back of a user’s
upper arm. The sensor is the size of two
stacked quarters and gives real-time readings
for up to 10 days, according to the company.
The sensor is also able to read glucose levels
Each scan provides three pieces of data,
including real-time glucose results, an eight
hour historical trend and a trend arrow showing the direction their glucose is headed. The accompanying touch-screen reader can hold up to 90 days’ worth of data to allow people to track glucose levels over time.
