Freestyle Libre Flash System Glucose Monitoring System
The first of its kind system, Freestyle Libre eliminates the need for routine finger sticks, requires no finger stick calibrations, and reads glucose levels through a sensor that can be worn on the back of the upper arm for up to 14 days.
How the Freestyle Libre System works:
With Abbott’s Freestyle Libre System Canadians with diabetes now have a convenient, less painful alternative to get a glucose reading.
The disposable sensor is worn on the back of the upper arm. The system measures glucose every minute in intertidal fluid through a small filament that is inserted just under the skin and held in place with a small adhesive pad. The sensor can read glucose levels through clothing making tested more convenient and discreet.
Freestyle-Libre system is clinically proven to be accurate and consistent over a 14 day period, without the need for finger stick calibration.
The ability for patients to easily obtain reliable and detailed self-glucose measurement, including current levels and trend direction of glucose without routine finger sticks, provides the person with diabetes valuable insights into their care.
As a Type 2 diabetic, I am excited to try this revolutionary new glucose-sensing technology, and I will definitely be ordering one soon,
Abbott’s Freestyle Libre System is now available for pre-order online only at myfreestyle.ca. at a cost of $49 for the reader, and $89 for each sensor(each sensor lasts for 14 days)
