Additional news about the Freestyle Libre Pro

The Libre Pro is a waterproof button the size of a quarter that sits on the outside of the upper arm. It houses a tiny needle-shaped sensor that rests just under the skin, continuously measuring glucose levels in the interstitial fluid that bathes the cells. Users hold a companion device, or an Android phone, above the sensor to get an immediate reading; an arrow indicates if levels are rising or falling.

  1. Thanks, Raghav, for managing this blog. You are providing very useful information to people who need glucose monitoring. I heard from many people about NightRider BluCon from Ambrosia Systems which converts this FreeStyle Libre Pro sensor in to a continuous glucose monitor(CGM) and helps them saving hundreds of thousands rupees. CGM from Dexcom and Medtronic costs about 1.5 Lac Rupees and it is about 2 generation old in comparison to United States or Europe While NightRider which costs about 9000 Rs converts Libre Pro sensor in to latest generation CGM which costs 5-6 lacs rupees. Could you provide more details on that

    • Hi Ravi, I am using NightRider BluCon from last 18 months. I used it with FreeStyle Libre available in USA and FreeStyle Libre Pro sensor available in India. I bought it when I was in Los Angeles as Ambrosia( maker of NightRider BluCon) are based in San Francisco, My doctors in LA introduced me to Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre sensor and NightRider as he was very impressed with this combination due to quality and affordability. This combination brought down the cost of Continuous Glucose Monitoring to about $1500 while other options like Dexcom and Medtronic cost more than $5000.
      After I got a job in Mumbai I switched to FreeStyle Libre Pro sensor as FreeStyle Libre was not available in India. Also, price of FreeStyle Libre pro sensor is 1999 Rs. so my total cost for one year came down to less than $900 which is lowest in the world. I know several people in United States, Canada and U.K are using NightRider for several months and now I see many in India. Recently I purchased a second Waterproof version of the NightRider for my cousin from Ambrosia website ambrosiasys.com and FreeStyle Libre Pro sensors from +91 9343598241
