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 14 days. The sensor checks blood sugar every one to five minutes.
This may mean fewer fingersticks for patients who check blood sugar often...such as those on an insulin pump or multiple insulin injections.
