FreeStyle LIbre Flash Glucose Monitoring System Pediatric Accuracy Study
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

The purpose of this study is to characterize the Freestyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System in pediatric subjects with respect to YSI reference venous plasma sample measurements.
Condition or disease
Device: Freestyle LIbre Flash Glucose Monitoring System
Up to 250 subjects will be enrolled at up to six (6) clinical research sites in the United States. Subjects will wear two Sensors. Each Sensor will have a paired Reader that will be given to the subject. All Readers will be masked during the study (i.e. subjects will not be able to view glucose results obtained from the Sensor on the Reader screen). Subjects will be asked to perform at least 4 capillary Blood Glucose (BG) tests per day using the primary Reader. Interstitial glucose readings from each Sensor will be obtained with the corresponding Readers immediately following each BG test. Subjects will be instructed to report any problems with the device. Subjects will make three (3), four (4) or five (5) scheduled visits to the clinical study site, including the Enrollment/Screening Visit (Visit 1). Based on the subjects weight, subjects will have up to two (2) in-clinic visits during which intravenous blood draws and YSI reference testing will occur.

For subjects age 6 and older: willing to allow medical personnel to insert an IV catheter in the arm to allow for venous blood flow samples to be obtained per the study protocol.
For subjects age 11 and older: subject is willing to have their blood sugar manipulated during one or more in-clinic sessions.
In the investigator's opinion, the subject must be able to follow the instructions provided to him/her by the study site and perform all study tasks as specified by the protocol.
At the time of enrollment, subject must be available to participate in all study visits.
Known insulin sensitivity factor (only applicable to subjects age 11 and older).
Subject's parent, guardian or legally authorized representative must be willing and able to provide written informed consent.
Subject must be willing and able to provide written signed and dated informed assent when appropriate.
Subject is 18 years of age or older.
Subject has a history of hypoglycemia unawareness (only applicable to subjects age 11 and older).
Subject has known allergy to medical grade adhesive or isopropyl alcohol used to disinfect skin.
Subject is known to be pregnant or becomes pregnant during the study (applicable to female subjects only).
Subject has extensive skin changes/diseases at the proposed application sites that could interfere with device placement or the accuracy of interstitial glucose measurements. Such conditions include, but are not limited to extensive psoriasis, recent burns or severe sunburn, extensive eczema, extensive scarring, dermatitis herpetiformis, skin lesions, redness, infection or edema.
Subject has had an episode of severe hypoglycemia requiring intervention from a health care professional(i.e. EMT assistance, emergency room visit, or hospital admission) within the last six (6) months (only applicable to subjects age 11 or older).
Subject has had an episode of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) within the last (3) months (only applicable to subjects age 11 or older).
Subject is currently participating in another clinical trial.
Subject has donated blood within 112 days (3.7 months) prior to the beginning of the study activities (only applicable to subjects age 6 and older).
Subject has both hemoglobin (Hb) and hematocrit levels that are below the normal ranges (only applicable to subjects age 6 and older). The low end of the normal range for Hb is as follows: for males and females aged 6-12 years old it is 11.5 g/dL; for males aged 12-17 it is 13.0 g/dL; for females aged 12-17 it is 12.0 g/dL. The low end of the normal hematocrit for males and females aged 6-12 is 35%; 37% for males aged 12-17 and 36% for females aged 12- 17).
Subject has X-ray, MRI, CT or diathermy appointment scheduled during the period of study participation, and the appointment cannot be rescheduled for a time before study participation starts or after study participation ends.
Subject is unsuitable for participation due to any other cause as determined by the Investigator.
