Flash Glucose Monitoring is a new

category of glucose monitoring designed

as an affordable and easy way to generate

the amount of glucose data needed for an

insightful glycaemic picture. It comprises a

small, flat on-body sensor which does not

have a transmitter. To pick up the data,

the receiver needs to be swiped over the

sensor. Or, there is now also smartphone

apps that do the same thing (see below).

What makes Flash Glucose Monitoring

unique is this quick scan of the reader

over the easy-to-wear sensor to collect

A FreeStyle LibreLink app is now available on iOS for iPhones.

Previously available on Android smartphones, the FreeStyle LibreLink

app is available for iPhone 7 and upward. Using the FreeStyle LibreLink

app on a smartphone includes several updates and new features in

comparison to the reader including: a larger, high-resolution display,

text-to-speech capabilities for glucose readings and the ability to log

smaller doses of insulin (0.1 unit vs 0.5 units). The FreeStyle LibreLink

app has been launched as part of Abbott's Digital Health Solutions.

There is a list of compatible smartphones available on Abbott's website.

the glucose data.

Another key feature of the Flash

Glucose Monitoring system is that the

sensor, which is disposable, lasts up to

14 days during which it automatically

measures, captures and stores glucose

data. The FreeStyle Libre system is

designed to be an easy to use and broadly

accessible device for many patients

with diabetes. FreeStyle Libre system is

clinically proven to decrease all measures

of hypoglycaemia in both Type 1 and Type

2 diabetics as shown in the IMPACT and

REPLACE randomized clinical trials.

Data from more than 250,000 people

wearing FreeStyle Libre sensors in the

real-world (not just in clinic circumstances)

shows a correlation between more

scanning and a decrease in hypos and

increase in improved control.
