Help Patients With FreeStyle Libre and Other Continuous Glucose Monitors
Buzz about FreeStyle Libre will raise questions about personal continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for diabetes.
Patients who use a continuous glucose monitor wear a sensor with a fine needle on their arm or abdomen...and change it every 6 to 10 days. The sensor checks blood sugar every one to 5 minutes.
This may mean fewer fingersticks for patients who check blood sugar often...such as those on an insulin pump or multiple insulin injections.
