with no news yet of plans for release in the

UK, as it's Libre 2 sensor has just been

made available here.

The FreeStyle Libre portfolio has been

clinically proven to improve glucose

control, increase time in target glucose

range, decrease time in hyperglycaemia

(high glucose levels) and hypoglycaemia

(low glucose levels), and lower HbA1c

- all factors contributing to better health

outcomes. Data also show use of the

FreeStyle Libre system reduces diabetesrelated

hospital admissions and work

absentee rates to help improve quality of life.

FreeStyle Libre was the first version

of the wildly successful Flash glucose

monitor from Abbot. It's the model

currently available in the UK. It does not

have alarms but when scanned it does

show trends, such as trending high

(or low). It is not clear if this version will

remain available. It's gained great support

from users by being easy to use and as

not everyone wants to have alarms. At

this point there is no news that this will be

discontinued.

FreeStyle Libre 2 includes optional

alarms. This has been available in some

markets in Europe. Although is not yet

available in the UK, it is hoped that will

change before the end of 2020 following

negotiations with NHS England. The

wearer still has to scan the sensor either

with the Libre reader or via smartphone

app. This model can give alarms and

alerts via its Bluetooth technology so

long as the sensor, reader or phone are

in range. These alarms will sound without

scanning the sensor (including an 'out of

range' alert). There are thresholds set for

high and low alerts and alarms, with some

degree of personalisation possible.

FreeStyle Libre 3 this will be a smaller,

thinner sensor complete with full 'bells

and whistles', a full CGM system that

transmits continual blood glucose data

to a choice of Libre's associated app

on a smartphone. It will be on the same

Libre Sense, also newly available, is a version of the

FreeStyle Libre sensor mainly aimed at sports people

not people with diabetes. The idea is it will help

athletes and other sporting folks to maximise their

'fuelling' in order to achieve a greater performance.

Only available for sale (not on prescription).

Libre sense for sports

'ecosystem', the FreeStyle LibreLink

app, the LibreLinkUp app which shares

data with parents, partners or carers and

HCPs, and LibreView (for PC). It is also a

'greener' product with less unrecyclable

packing used.
