FreeStyle Libre reader and sensor

Both real-world evidence and clinical trial results highlight the benefits of FreeStyle Libre 2 system vs self-monitoring blood glucose (SMBG)*†1-5

In both real-world evidence and clinical trials of T1D and T2D patients vs. SMBG, FreeStyle Libre 2 system was proven to*†1-5:

  • Increase monitoring frequency1,2
  • Reduce time in hypoglycemia1,2
  • Improve glucose control1-5

*IMPACT Trial: A randomized, controlled 6-month trial to evaluate the effectiveness of the FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring system (n=119) on glycemic control for the self-management of type 1 diabetes (TlD) as compared to self-monitored blood glucose (SMBG; n=120).

REPLACE Trial: A randomized, controlled trial to evaluate the impact of the FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring system (n=149) on HbA1c in people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) taking multiple daily doses of insulin at 6 months compared to self-monitored blood glucose (SMBG; n=75).

Data from this study was collected with the outside US version of 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.
