Traditional Blood glucose testing or flash glucose monitoring?

Sensor glucose readings come from the interstitial fluid (ISF), a thin layer of fluid that surrounds the cells of the tissues below your skin. The FreeStyle Libre 2 Sensor Glucose readings lag behind a finger prick blood glucose reading by about 2.1 minutes for children and about 2.4 minutes for adults 2.

Finger prick blood glucose readings and sensor glucose readings won’t always match and in fact are likely to be different.

    FreeStyle Libre review: What to know

    We include products we think are useful for our readers. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here’s our process.

    FreeStyle Libre is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system. It uses a sensor to read and check a person’s glucose levels. It is a device that people with diabetes can use to help manage the condition.

    Please note that the writer of this article has not tried these products. All information presented is purely research-based.

    Brand overview and reputation

    FreeStyle Libre is a product that the healthcare company Abbott makes. The company’s headquarters are in Illinois, and it makes various medical devices and health-related products.

    Abbott has an average customer rating of 1.5 out of 5 stars on Trustpilot, with 77% of the reviews only awarding the company 1 star. Many of these negative reviews mention poor customer service.

    At the time of publishing, only 8% of the 490 reviews give the company 4 or 5 stars. These reviews say that the company is reputable and that the products are of good quality.

    Abbott also has a Better Business Bureau (BBB) page, but it does not have BBB accreditation. The company has an average customer rating of 1 out of 5 stars and an overall grade of B. It has closed 39 complaints in the last 3 years.

    FreeStyle Libre product details

    The FreeStyle Libre is a type of integrated continuous glucose monitoring system (iCGM). It takes readings via a sensor on the arm or belly — depending on where a person places the device. It then automatically transmits them to a handheld receiver.

    The company claims that its sensors are comfortable to wear and less bulky than other brands of CGM sensors.

    They also say that this sensor provides a reading every minute and has a life span of 14 days. People can apply this sensor without the help of a medical professional.

    This model is suitable for any adult or child aged 4 years and above.

    Each FreeStyle Libre comes with a compatible reader. A person simply scans the sensor with the reader, and the details will appear on the screen. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved both the sensor and reader. However, the FDA is currently reviewing a compatible smartphone app that will allow customers to view readings on their phones instead.

    There are also optional alarm notifications. A person can customize these alarms and choose which they would like to receive. These alarms can be for low or high glucose warnings or for loss of signal between the reader and sensor.

    14-day system

    There is also a FreeStyle Libre 14-day system. Based on the information on the website, it appears that this model is similar to the FreeStyle Libre 2. However, although a person can use a smartphone app to check readings and details with this model, it does not include alarm features.

    LEARN MORE

    Price

    The website is vague about the exact cost of the products. The company does say, however, that they cost less than most CGM systems. It also claims that privately insured patients end up paying up to $60 a month for the sensors and no more than $65 for the readers. Find out more about private health insurance coverage.

    Medicare enrollees may be able to get their readers for free. Find out more information about Medicare coverage.

    The Department of Veterans Affairs covers the 14-day system for veterans. Learn more about coverage for veterans.

    A person may be eligible to receive either product for free for a trial if they sign up for the MyFreeStyle program. Find out more about this program.

    Alternatives

    Many alternative CGMs are available. Some examples include:

    • Dexcom G6: The sensor for this device goes just under the skin. People apply it with an auto-applicator. Each sensor lasts for 10 days and is compatible with smartphones and Apple watches. The device also comes with a reader for those who do not wish to use their phone.
    • Eversense: A healthcare professional must insert this CGM, which is usable for 90 days. Users can receive their readings via the companion reader or on their smartphone.
    • Guardian Connect System: This is another sensor that is compatible with a smartphone app. It gives predictive alerts by analyzing previous glucose levels and working out when a person may get a high or low glucose level reading.

    As an alternative to CGMs, a person can test their blood glucose levels using a lancet and blood sugar meter. They use the lancet to obtain a small blood sample, which they then test using a blood sugar meter.

    Glucose levels and diabetes

    In people with diabetes, the body either does not make enough insulin, or it does not use it properly. This means that blood glucose levels can become very high or very low, leading to adverse health effects.

    Therefore, checking these levels is an important way to manage diabetes. Glucose levels will determine what a person eats and a person’s exercise routine.

    The says that a person with diabetes should aim to keep their blood glucose at 80–130 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl) before a meal and less than 180 mg/dl 2 hours after a meal.

    suggests that CGMs are an efficient way to monitor these blood glucose levels.

    The say that people are at higher risk for developing diabetes if they:

    • have a family history of the condition
    • have prediabetes
    • have excess body weight
    • are aged 45 years or over
    • do not exercise regularly
    • have had gestational diabetes or given birth to a baby weighing more than 9 pounds
    • are African American, Hispanic, Latin American, Native American, or Alaskan Native

    When to see a doctor

    The says that people may need to visit a doctor if their blood glucose levels are frequently too high or too low or they have any symptoms of high or low blood sugar.

    The symptoms of hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar, include:

    Hypoglycemia is the official name for low blood glucose. In severe cases, it can be life threatening.

    The symptoms can often come on very quickly. Some mild-to-moderate symptoms may include:

    • shakiness
    • sweating
    • dizziness
    • confusion
    • pale skin
    • lack of coordination
    • irritability or nervousness
    • poor concentration
    • weakness
    • fast or irregular heartbeat

    Severe symptoms may include not being able to eat or drink, seizures, convulsions, and unconsciousness. If a person with diabetes has any symptoms of hypoglycemia, urgent medical help is necessary.

    Summary

    Freestyle Libre by Abbott is a CGM device that allows people with diabetes to monitor their blood glucose levels.

    It uses a small round sensor that takes a reading every minute. People wear it for 14 days and can check their blood glucose levels using the included compatible reader.

    Revolutionizing CGM with FreeStyle Libre

    

    NO IMAGE

    | Feb. 7, 2019

    February 2019

    Daily diabetes monitoring hurts. If you or someone you love has diabetes, you're probably familiar with the tedious routine of glucose monitoring, the painful fingersticks to draw a drop of blood and the bulky traditional glucose monitoring equipment requiring daily calibrations. These inconveniences can make it difficult to stick to a diabetes management plan, opening the door for complications to arise.

    What if you could take the pain and inconvenience out of glucose monitoring and experience a better way of managing the condition?

    For the 30.3 million Americans who have diabetes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's approval of the FreeStyle® Libre is that life-changing experience. The revolutionary system eliminates the hurdles of traditional glucose monitoring and requires no routine fingersticks or fingerstick calibrations.

    Across the globe, more than 400,000 people are using the FreeStyle Libre, and the system has been clinically proven to be accurate, stable and consistent.

    How Does Continuous Glucose Monitoring With the FreeStyle Libre System Work?

    The FreeStyle Libre system measures glucose levels through a small sensor — the size of two stacked quarters — applied to the back of your upper arm. It provides real-time glucose readings for up to 10 days, both day and night. The sensor can also read glucose levels through clothes, making testing discreet and convenient.

    The FreeStyle Libre system provides three critical pieces of data with each scan:

    • A real-time glucose result.
    • An eight-hour historical trend.
    • A directional trend arrow showing where glucose levels are headed.

    The touch-screen reader also holds up to 90 days of data, which allows people to track their glucose levels over time.

    How Does the FreeStyle Libre System Help Improve Treatment?

    The data generated by the FreeStyle Libre system is designed to provide actionable trends and patterns that help you make better decisions about your health, such as adjustments to your diet or how much insulin you need to take. For example, the reader's snapshots can reveal if a person is experiencing hypoglycemic trends (low glucose levels) patterns or hyperglycemic trends (high glucose levels), which can aid in choosing the right diabetes management.

    Studies show that FreeStyle Libre users who scan more frequently spend less time in hypoglycemia and experience improved average glucose levels. According to a study published in The Lancet, people using the FreeStyle Libre system spent 38 percent less time within hypoglycemia as compared with those who managed their glucose with traditional self-monitoring glucose system.

    Diabetes doesn't have to control your life. It's time to live freely.

    INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

    The FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring system is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device indicated for replacing blood glucose testing and detecting trends and tracking patterns aiding in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long-term therapy adjustments in persons (age 18 and older) with diabetes. The system is intended for single patient use and requires a prescription.

    CONTRAINDICATIONS: Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment.

    WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS: Do not ignore symptoms that may be due to low or high blood glucose, hypoglycemic unawareness, or dehydration. Check sensor glucose readings with a blood glucose meter when Check Blood Glucose symbol appears, when symptoms do not match system readings, or when readings are suspected to be inaccurate. The FreeStyle Libre system does not have alarms unless the sensor is scanned, and the system contains small parts that may be dangerous if swallowed. The FreeStyle Libre system is not approved for pregnant women, persons on dialysis, or critically-ill population. Sensor placement is not approved for sites other than the back of the arm and standard precautions for transmission of bloodborne pathogens should be taken. The built-in blood glucose meter is not for use on dehydrated, hypotensive, in shock, hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar state, with or without ketosis, neonates, critically-ill patients, or for diagnosis or screening of diabetes. Review all product information before use or contact Abbott Toll-Free (855-632-8658) or visit www.freestylelibre.us detailed indications for use and safety information.

    Indications and Important Safety Information

    FreeStyle Libre 14 day system: The FreeStyle Libre 14 day Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device indicated for replacing blood glucose testing and detecting trends and tracking patterns aiding in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long-term therapy adjustments in persons (age 18 and older) with diabetes. The System is intended for single patient use and requires a prescription. 

    CONTRAINDICATIONS: Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment.

    WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS: Do not ignore symptoms that may be due to low or high blood glucose, hypoglycemic unawareness, or dehydration. Check sensor glucose readings with a blood glucose meter when Check Blood Glucose symbol appears, when symptoms do not match system readings, or when readings are suspected to be inaccurate. The FreeStyle Libre 14 day system does not have alarms unless the sensor is scanned, and the system contains small parts that may be dangerous if swallowed. The FreeStyle Libre 14 day system is not approved for pregnant women, persons on dialysis, or critically-ill population. Sensor placement is not approved for sites other than the back of the arm and standard precautions for transmission of blood borne pathogens should be taken. The built-in blood glucose meter is not for use on dehydrated, hypotensive, in shock, hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar state, with or without ketosis, neonates, critically-ill patients, or for diagnosis or screening of diabetes. When using FreeStyle LibreLink app, access to a blood glucose monitoring system is required as the app does not provide one. Review all product information before use or contact Abbott Toll Free 855-632-8658 or visit  www.freestylelibre.us for detailed indications for use and safety information.

    For full indications for use and safety information, see more here.

    FreeStyle Libre 2 system: The FreeStyle Libre 2 Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device with real time alarms capability indicated for the management of diabetes in persons age 4 and older.*

    WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS*: The System must not be used with automated insulin dosing (AID) systems, including closed loop and insulin suspend systems. Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment. Do not take high doses of vitamin C (more than 500 mg per day), as this may falsely raise your Sensor readings. Failure to use the System according to the instructions for use may result in missing a severe low blood glucose or high blood glucose event and/or making a treatment decision that may result in injury. If glucose alarms and readings from the System do not match symptoms or expectations, use a fingerstick blood glucose value to make diabetes treatment decisions. Seek medical attention when appropriate and contact Abbott Toll Free 855-632-8658 or visit * www.freestylelibre.us for detailed indications for use and safety information.

    *For full indications for use and safety information, see more here.

    FreeStyle Libre Pro system: The FreeStyle Libre Pro Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a professional continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns and glucose level excursions above or below the desired range, facilitating therapy adjustments in persons (age 18 and older) with diabetes. The system is intended for use by health care professionals and requires a prescription.

    IMPORTANT: The device may inaccurately indicate hypoglycemia. The results of the clinical study conducted for this device showed that 40% of the time when the device indicated that user sensor glucose values were at or below 60 mg/dL, user glucose values were actually in the range of 81-160 mg/dL. Therefore, interpretation of the FreeStyle Libre Pro Flash Glucose Monitoring System readings should only be based on the trends and patterns analyzed through time using the reports available per the intended use.

    CONTRAINDICATIONS: Remove the Sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment.

    WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS: The FreeStyle Libre Pro System does not provide real-time results and patients should adhere to their blood glucose monitoring routine while using the system. If a sensor breaks, contact physician and call Customer Service. Patients with high levels of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) or salicylic acid (used in Aspirin) or severe dehydration or excessive water loss may experience inaccurate results with this system. The FreeStyle Libre Pro System is not approved for pregnant women, persons on dialysis, or recommended for critically-ill population. Sensor placement is not approved for sites other than the back of the arm and standard precautions for transmission of blood borne pathogens should be taken. Review all product information before use or contact Abbott Toll Free 855-632-5297.
