Is traditional blood glucose monitoring (BGM) holding you back?
Don’t let diabetes management keep you from living your life freely and participating in the activities you enjoy. It can be disheartening trying to manage the fluctuations of your blood sugar — from the meals you eat and beverages you consume to physical activity, and sleep patterns — all of these factors play a role. And, this can get taxing.

The Importance of Blood Glucose Monitoring With The FreeStyle Libre CGM System
Important information to consider when choosing a CGM such as the FreeStyle Libre is that not only can you retrieve a current blood glucose reading, but you also receive a trend which is important for diabetes management.
CGM sensors take interstitial fluid (ISF) when providing blood glucose feedback. Blood glucose readings trend about 5 to 10 minutes ahead of ISF glucose readings — when blood glucose levels are balanced, these numbers are about the same, but during glucose spikes and drops, the numbers fluctuate a bit more and this change is known as lag.
The main factor to consider is that a CGM system doesn’t only focus on a single glucose point in time but also the trend, which provides the picture into your blood glucose levels, instead of just one moment in time.
The FreeStyle Libre provides a graph displaying a pattern of blood glucose fluctuations over a day, with the ability to view the last 7-day time period
This displays when your blood sugar levels were in target range and above and below target range.
Low Blood Sugar Events
The low glucose events display allows you to view readings that drop below 70 mg/dL in four different 6-hour time frames.
