The Blood Glucose Monitor FreeStyle Libre 14 Day Sensor
The FreeStyle Libre 14 Day Sensor small size makes it discreet to wear.
This small water resistant1 sensor is worn on the back of your upper arm and lasts for up to 14 days.
Sensor How It Works
1. APPLY THE SENSOR
The FreeStyle Libre 14 Day Sensor is applied on to the back of the upper arm with a simple, disposable device called an applicator. When the sensor is applied, a thin, flexible and sterile fibre is inserted just under the skin. It is held in place with a small adhesive pad.
2. SCAN SENSOR
To obtain a glucose reading, simply perform a quick, painless 1-second scan of the reader over the sensor. This scan gives you more information than monitoring with blood glucose test strips, without the need for routine finger pricks2. The FreeStyle Libre system also offers optional FreeStyle Libre software to generate concise reports to assist with the analysis of glucose data.
3. GET READING
Each scan of the reader over the sensor gives a current glucose reading, the last 8-hours of glucose history, and a trend arrow showing if glucose is going up, down, or changing slowly. The reader can scan through clothing3.
NO MORE ROUTINE FINGER PRICKS2
Unlike traditional glucose monitoring, using the FreeStyle Libre sensor does not involve routine finger pricks2.
The FreeStyle Libre sensor is factory calibrated – so you don’t need to calibrate it again.
It continuously measures the glucose concentration in your interstitial fluid, and stores 8 hours of data.
The FreeStyle Libre Sensor can be worn for up to 14 days whilst you shower, bathe, swim1, exercise or play.
TRADITIONAL GLUCOSE TESTING, OR FLASH GLUCOSE MONITORING?
Finger prick2 glucose readings and sensor glucose readings won’t always match and in fact are likely to be different5.
ALLOWS REGULAR MONITORING
You can take as many glucose readings as you want whilst the sensor is being worn – it even scans through clothes3.
Due to the sensor storing the latest 8 hours of continuous data, you only need a minimum of three scans per day to obtain a full 24 hour glycaemic profile4 – enabling you to make more informed decisions about your diabetes management.
