Abbott Freestyle Glucose Monitoring System
How does it work?
To start using the system, you need to purchase a Reader and a Sensor. The reader is only bought once at the beginning and the sensor needs to be changed every 14 days.
The Reader: With every painless scan, the FreeStyle Libre reader displays the current glucose reading, the latest 8 hours of continuous glucose data and a trend arrow showing if glucose levels are going up down or changing slowly.
The Sensor: The FreeStyle Libre sensor is applied on to the back of the upper arm with a simple, disposable device called an applicator. When the sensor is applied, a thin, flexible and sterile fibre is inserted just under the skin.
Pricking fingers before and after each and every meal, in the morning and at night is not that all fun. If you have diabetes or you know someone who does understand how painful constant pricking can be. MedM has now brought to Mauritius the Flash Glucose Monitoring.The days of routine glucose testing with lancets, test strips and blood are over.
