The FreeStyle Libre is a newer way to check blood glucose levels but is not yet available in the United States. The system consists of a sensor, with a wire underneath the skin, like a traditional Continuous Glucose Monitor and a controller. To see blood glucose readings the user holds the controller up to the sensor. Abbott Diabetes Care calls the Libre a Flash Glucose Monitor. Stacey talks to Abbott’s Senior Director of New Product Innovation, Joel Goldsmith. As of this airing, the Libre is available in Europe and is expected to launch in Australia in a few weeks. Stacey also talks about the end of the school year, looking ahead to Middle School for her son with type 1 and advice about 504 plans.
