Comparing two groups from lowest to highest scan rate8, patients who scanned more frequently using the FreeStyle Libre systems* spent 43% more Time In Range.
Frequent use of the FreeStyle Libre system also resulted in patients spending 26% less Time Below Range (<3.0 mmol/L)5
Increased testing frequency is sustained over time with the FreeStyle Libre system.9
