Libre System

Already using a CGM?

Make fingerstick calibrations a thing of the past.

The FreeStyle Libre system reinvents continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) so that you can stop fingerstick calibration and start wearing just a small sensor on the back of the upper arm for a new CGM experience.

Dexcom CGM users may be eligible to try the FreeStyle Libre system free of charge*

Liberation from fingerstick calibration

The system's innovative sensing technology does not require fingerstick calibration with a blood glucose reading to maintain accuracy.

CGM glucose readings

† Among leading brands of continuous glucose monitoring systems.

‡ Response profiles of Dexcom G5/G4 Platinum, Medtronic Enlite, and FreeStyle Libre sensors in phosphate-buffered saline with glucose solution, with successive addition of acetaminophen at 5 mg/dL intervals. The 5, 10, 15, and 20 mg/dL markers show when acetaminophen was added to the glucose solution. The test range is the recommended testing level by CLSI EP7A2 standard.

Note: 400 mg/dL is the maximum reportable glucose level range for Dexcom and Medtronic systems.

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 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.
