Indication of Use:

The FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system is indicated for measuring interstitial fluid glucose levels in people (age 4 and older) with diabetes mellitus including pregnant women. The indication for children (age 4 – 12) is limited to those who are supervised by a caregiver who is at least 18 years of age. A caregiver at least 18 years old is responsible for supervising, managing, and assisting the child in using the FreeStyle Libre system and interpreting its readings.

It is designed to replace blood glucose testing in the self-management of diabetes with the exceptions listed below. Under the following circumstances, use a blood glucose meter to check the current glucose readings from the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system sensor:

DURING TIMES OF RAPIDLY CHANGING GLUCOSE LEVELS, INTERSTITIAL GLUCOSE LEVELS AS MEASURED BY THE SENSOR AND REPORTED AS CURRENT MAY NOT ACCURATELY REFLECT BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS. WHEN GLUCOSE LEVELS ARE FALLING RAPIDLY, GLUCOSE READINGS FROM THE SENSOR MAY BE HIGHER THAN BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS. CONVERSELY WHEN GLUCOSE LEVELS ARE RISING RAPIDLY, GLUCOSE READINGS FROM THE SENSOR MAY BE LOWER THAN BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVELS.
IN ORDER TO CONFIRM HYPOGLYCAEMIA OR IMPENDING HYPOGLYCAEMIA AS REPORTED BY THE SENSOR.
IF SYMPTOMS DO NOT MATCH THE FREESTYLE LIBRE FLASH GLUCOSE MONITORING SYSTEM READING. DO NOT IGNORE SYMPTOMS THAT MAY BE DUE TO LOW BLOOD GLUCOSE OR HIGH BLOOD GLUCOSE.
