- Directions for Use
The FreeStyle Libre system consists of:
- Sensor Kit: includes a sensor pack (used with the sensor applicator to prepare the sensor), sensor applicator (applies the sensor to the back of the upper arm), alcohol wipe (to clean the application site) and a product insert (provides instructions on how to apply the sensor).
How to apply the sensor
The FreeStyle Libre sensor is applied on to the back of the upper arm with a simple, disposable device called an applicator. When the sensor is applied, a thin, flexible and sterile fibre is inserted just under the skin. It is held in place with a small adhesive pad. Most people feel no pain when applying the sensor. Wash the chosen site with soap and allow the skin to fully dry, before applying the sensor. Open the sensor pack by peeling off the lid completely. Unscrew the cap from the sensor applicator and set the cap aside. Line up the dark mark on the sensor applicator with the dark mark on the sensor pack. On a hard surface, press firmly down on the sensor applicator until it comes to a stop. Place the sensor applicator over the prepared site and push down firmly to apply the sensor to your body. Gently pull the sensor applicator away from your body. The sensor should now be attached to your skin
To obtain a glucose reading, simply perform a quick, painless 1-second scan of the reader over the sensor. This scan gives you more information than monitoring with blood glucose test strip, without the need for routine finger pricks. The FreeStyle Libre system also offers software to generate concise reports to assist with the analysis of glucose data.
Each scan of the reader over the sensor gives a current glucose reading, the last 8-hours of glucose history, and a trend arrow showing if glucose is going up, down, or changing slowly. The reader can even scan through clothing with a thickness of up to 4 mm.2
Why does the FreeStyle Libre system require a 12-hour warm up period?
During the first 12 hours after application, the sensor is acclimating to your body. Continuous glucose readings are unavailable during the warm-up period.
What do I do during the first 12 hours while the FreeStyle Libre system is warming up?
FreeStyle Libre Reader has a built-in test strip port that utilizes FreeStyle Precision Neo test strips. During the 12-hour warm-up period, patients can use the test strip port to monitor their glucose.
Price factorThe reader is a one-time cost to the consumer at ₹5,500 and the sensor is a recurring cost of ₹5,000. The sensor gives continuous readings for 14 days and analytics, mapping the sugar levels against diet, exercise etc. If u don't want to use sensor again, patients can use the test strip through port to monitor their glucose. Cost of Strips is Rs 1500 per pack of 50 and one has to use conventional pricking lancets for applying blood to Strips.
Can the FreeStyle Libre system be prescribed for children?The indication for children (age 4 - 17) is limited to those who are supervised by a caregiver who is at least 18 years of age. The caregiver is responsible for managing or assisting the child to manage the reader and sensor and also for interpreting or assisting the child to interpret sensor glucose readings
Persons 18 and older with diabetes can manage themselves.
Do patients need to remove the sensor during MRI/CT scan?
Yes. The sensor should be removed prior to exposing it to strong magnetic or electromagnetic radiation, such as with a MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) or CT (Computed Tomography) scan.
