    Hello

    Does anyone know the MARD of the Freestyle Libre reader and the Freestyle Libre 2 reader when they are being used as blood glucose meters?

    Thank you

    I don't know the MARD (mean absolute relative difference) but when I used the freestyle libre 1 reader as a glucometer I found it pretty consistent with my other meters.
