Abbott FreeStyle Freedom Lite Blood Glucose Monitoring System Kit
The FreeStyle Freedom Lite Blood Glucose Meter Kit requires only a 0.3 microliter blood sample size (the world’s smallest sample size). This blood glucose meter has a larger display screen so that reading your results can be just as easy as the testing process. Absolutely no coding is required. Test results for your blood glucose test show up in just 5 seconds.
The test will only start when enough blood is applied, eliminating wasted strips. You can add more blood for up to 60 seconds. The FreeStyle Freedom Lite Blood Glucose Meter will beep when enough blood is inserted.

What is a glucose meter?
Glucometers, also referred to as blood sugar monitors, glucose meters, and blood glucose meters, are measurement systems used by diabetics to self-measure the level of glucose or sugar in their bloodstream.
How accurate are home glucose meters?
Home glucometers are usually very accurate, although results generally differ from lab results.
To ensure that your glucose meter is giving you accurate readings, consider the following important factors which directly affect the accuracy of results:
Use blood glucose testing best practices.
- Thoroughly wash and dry your hands and the testing site prior to testing. This is crucial as dirt, alcohol and other substances present on skin can lead to incorrect results.
- Use fingertip samples. While some diabetics prefer testing their forearm, calf, thigh, or upper arm to reduce pain, these sites are only recommended when the blood sugar level is stable. The fingertip, on the other hand, is quick, easy and the most accurate testing site.
- Produce sufficient amount of blood. Try to apply a generously-sized blood globule to the test strip.
- Do not add additional samples once you’ve touched the glucose test strip with blood to avoid affecting the results.
- Test properly. If you do not insert the test strip fully into the glucose meter, your monitor can’t do its work properly, so make sure you’re doing it right the first time.
