Regular glucose monitoring and keeping within your glucose targets are important steps towards a healthy pregnancy and birth1,2. The FreeStyle Libre system makes glucose monitoring easy during pregnancy.
Get accurate and up to the minute glucose readings with a one-second scan using the FreeStyle Libre system – no routine finger pricks required.*
* A finger prick test using a blood glucose meter is required during times of rapidly changing glucose levels when interstitial fluid glucose levels may not accurately reflect blood glucose levels, or if hypoglycaemia or impending hypoglycaemia is reported or the symptoms do not match the system readings.
** To get a complete glucose history, the sensor must be scanned at least once every 8 hours and the sensor must be replaced every 14 days.
