Expect Buzz About CGM With New FreeStyle Libre 3
The new FreeStyle Libre 3 will lead to more buzz about continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for patients with diabetes.
Libre 3 is similar to Libre 2 in that it’s for ages 4 and up...and uses a sensor worn on the upper arm that’s changed up to every 14 days.
But Libre 3’s sensor is a bit smaller. Plus it automatically sends results to a smartphone app. Older versions require scanning with a separate reader or smartphone to display results.
