What is the FreeStyle Navigator® Continuous Glucose Monitoring System?
The FreeStyle Navigator® Continuous Glucose Monitoring System is a glucose monitoring device that continuously measures, displays, and records the glucose levels in the fluid found between the cells under the skin (interstitial fluid). It provides you with a glucose reading once every minute. It does this by using a small, thin, plastic sensor that is inserted about 5 mm (one-fifth of an inch) under your skin. A transmitter that is attached to the sensor sends the glucose data through wireless communication to a compact handheld display unit called the receiver.
