The system is compatible with a reader or other devices to give you consistent blood glucose monitoring to make your diabetes management easier and more convenient.
† Data from this study was collected with the outside US version of FreeStyle Libre 14 day system. FreeStyle Libre 2 has the same features as FreeStyle Libre 14 day system with optional, real-time glucose alarms. Therefore, the study data is applicable to both products.
‡ Fingersticks are required if your glucose alarms and readings do not match symptoms or when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol during the first 12 hours.
II Sensor is water-resistant in up to 1 meter (3 feet) of water. Do not immerse longer than 30 minutes.
¶ The FreeStyle Libre 2 app and the FreeStyle Libre 2 reader have similar but not identical features. Fingersticks are required for treatment decisions when you see the Check Blood Glucose symbol and when your glucose alarms and readings from the system do not match symptoms or expectations.
** The FreeStyle Libre 2 app also has a mandatory Urgent Low Glucose Alarm that lets users know when their glucose value is below 55 mg/dL.
