FreeStyle Libre 2 System
- Now with optional, real-time glucose alarms+ that notify you if you go too low or too high
- Unsurpassed 14 day accuracy(1) for adults and children with diabetes (ages 4 and older)
- No confirmatory fingersticks* required for insulin dosing - even when glucose is low, falling, or rapidly changing(1)
- A painless(3,#) 1-second scan instead of fingersticks*
* Fingersticks are required if your glucose alarms and readings do not match symptoms or when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol during the first 12 hours.
+ Notifications will only be received when alarms are turned on and the sensor is within 20 feet of the reading device.
# Data from this study was collected with the outside US version of the FreeStyle Libre 14 day system. FreeStyle Libre 2 has the same features as FreeStyle Libre 14 day system with optional real-time glucose alarms. Therefore the study data is applicable to both products.

The FreeStyle Libre 2 Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device with real-time alarms capability indicated for the management of diabetes in persons age 4 and older.**
WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS**: The System must not be used with automated insulin dosing (AID) systems, including closed-loop and insulin suspend systems. Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment. Do not take high doses of vitamin C (more than 500 mg per day), as this may falsely raise your Sensor readings. Failure to use the System according to the instructions for use may result in missing a severe low blood glucose or high blood glucose event and/or making a treatment decision that may result in injury. If glucose alarms and readings from the System do not match symptoms or expectations, use a fingerstick blood glucose value to make diabetes treatment decisions. Seek medical attention when appropriate and contact Abbott toll-free 855-632-8658 or visit ** www.FreeStyleLibre.us for detailed indications for use and safety information.
**Please refer to www.FreeStyleLibre.us for the indications and important safety information.

Medicaid is an assistance program. It serves low-income people of various ages. Medical bills are paid from federal, state and local tax funds. Patients usually pay no part of the costs or very little for covered medical expenses, although a small co-payment is sometimes required. Medicaid is a federal-state program. It is run by state and local governments within federal guidelines, so it varies from state to state.
