FreeStyle Libre 

FreeStyle Libre allows you to check on your blood glucose level, anytime, 24/7, with no pricking of your fingers to obtain a drop of blood.

This revolutionary technology became available in Singapore in June 2017. A sensor the size of a 50 cent coin sits on the skin of your arm. A scanner held within 4 centimeters of the disc tells your glucose level in real time.

The sensor is water-proof and may be taken for a swim without worrying that the electronics in it will malfunction

The video shows how this device works. Without exception, all patients to whom I have introduced this technology, have found it enormously beneficial. Read about one patient's experence here.

From May 2019, Singaporean users of Android or iOS powered phones may download the Freestyle Librelink App; this makes unnecessary the need for a reader. To download the app, click on this link. Note that the app is country specific. Unless released in the app store of your country's cell phone provider, it will not work.
