Abbott produces the very popular FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitor. It’s largely like a continuous glucose monitor yet distinct from Dexcom it doesn’t have alarms, it lasts 14 days and you get your numbers by waving a small reader over the device.
This new collaboration will progress data sharing between the FreeStyle mobile app and Sanofi’s cloud connected apps and future smart insulin pens.
The expectation of course is that this data sharing, when available (don’t know currently) will enable people using the devices and their doctors to make better management decisions particularly around insulin dosing.
Yet another example of looking at the clouds to make everyday life here on the ground easier living with diabetes.
