"Re: continuous monitoring Keep in mind everyone that this device offers the enormous step forward of continuous data acquisition -- something that isn't possible with current fingerstick meters. Same as a CGM -- you can capture a continuous…"

"Great point. This allows the bodyware to be cheaper and smaller. And being entirely disposable can open the door to coverage under pharmacy vs DME."

"vs Dexcom, it appears more financially feasible to use on part-time basis with no ongoing replacement transmitter cost. After buying the reader device, sensors can be purchased in small amounts at no penalty to degrading transmitter battery life.…"

"Yes I agree Terry, but if it would mean doing even less finger sticks I would definitely use this in addition to dex."

"Abbott needs to re-commit to the regulatory hurdles in the US and mass produce their sensors. We just might end up with a cheaper alternative to Dexcom."

"Pretty close, except it does provide continuous data acquisition -- i.e. it's taking readings constantly and storing them, even when you're not scanning. As such, it can provide trend information at each scan, something that isn't…"

"Nice! Thank you, FDA. We diabetics really appreciate, very much, you protecting us from this obviously dangerous, risky technology. I'm glad we have the FDA too keep us from having access to information like this. Our government knows we will…"

"H*ll yes! Most RFID tags don't even have a battery. They're powered by the RF from the reader. In this case, some tiny continuous current is necessary to keep the device running collecting data, but this can be designed to be extremely low…"

Terry replied to Diabetes News and Interest's discussion 'Abbott FreeStyle® Libre Approved for Sale - Sensor Based Glucose Meter'
"The way I look at it, due to its lack of alarms, it acts more like a fingerstick meter than a CGM. But it can be read dozens of times per day rather than the 5 or 10 or less that most PWDs do with fingersticks. Combined with its no-calibration…"
