* Fingersticks are required for treatment decisions when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol, when symptoms do not match system readings, when you suspect readings may be inaccurate, or when you experience symptoms that may be due to high or low blood glucose.
Glucose readings at a glance
The Sensor Glucose Readings screen appears after you use the reader to scan your sensor. Your reading includes your current glucose reading, a glucose trend arrow indicating which way your glucose is headed, and a graph showing your 8 hours glucose history.
A graph showing the pattern and variability of your sensor glucose over a typical day. The thick black line shows the midpoint of your glucose readings. The gray shading represents a range of your sensor readings.
Note: Daily patterns needs at least 5 days of glucose data.
This view provides information about the number of low glucose events measured by your sensor. The total number of events is displayed above the graph. The bar graph displays the low glucose events in four different 6-hour periods of the day. Use the arrows to view your glucose data collected over the last 7, 14, 30, or 90 days. Low glucose events are recorded when glucose readings are lower than 70 mg/dL for longer than 15 minutes.
Shows the percentage of time your sensor readings were above, below, and within your target glucose range.
If your glucose reading is currently out of range, or is projected to be out of range, if it is rapidly changing, or if there is no number or trend arrow, you will see a visual alert, the Check Blood Glucose symbol. When you see this symbol, do a blood glucose test before making treatment decisions.
