Increased Monitoring Frequency

More frequent glucose monitoring with the FreeStyle Libre System is associated with better diabetes management1,5

Reduced HbA1c

Use of the FreeStyle Libre portfolio of products is clinically proven to significantly reduce HbA1c in patients with T2D4,7

Overall, 0.9% HbA1c reduction in patients with T2D on basal bolus insulin4


43% increase in time in target range

(70–180 mg/gL) from 11.7 to 16.8 hours a day with increased scan rate5

63% reduction in time spent in hyperglycaemia

across patients with T1D and T2D5

43% reduction in time spent in hypoglycaemia

in patients with T2D3

Making Better Choices

The FreeStyle Libre portfolio helps patients with T2D make better choices

Real World data showed that 95% of patients with T1D and T2D using the FreeStyle Libre system:

 Have a better understanding of their glucose fluctuations10

 Data from FreeStyle Libre users with T2D showed that users feel more engaged with managing their diabetes3,4


Lifestyle modifications can help lower HbA1c

Patients with T2D who make lifestyle changes, such as diet and physical activity, see improved glucose control.8

Improve Glycaemic Control in ChildrenѰ

Children and teenagers can successfully improve their glycaemic control with the FreeStyle Libre system

Increased time in range by 1 hour/day9 (70–180 mg/dL)

Reduced HbA1c by 0.4%9

Increased the frequency of glucose monitoring to an average of 13x /day vs. SMBG9

Reduced time spent in hyperglycaemia

(>180 mg/dL) by 1 hr/day with no significant increase in time spent in hypoglycaemia (<70 mg/dL)9

90% of children and teenagers agreed that the FreeStyle Libre system did not get in the way of daily activities9
