Introducing the FreeStyle Libre 3 Sensor: A Discrete Solution for Monitoring Glucose Levels

That’s where the FreeStyle Libre 3 Sensor comes in. This small and discrete sensor can detect glucose concentration from the interstitial fluid day and night, providing users with up-to-date information about their glucose levels.

Sync with Your Smartphone
