Brief Summary:
This is a non-randomized, single arm, multi-center, prospective, non-significant risk study to evaluate the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Diabetes Mellitus Device: FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System

Detailed Description:
Up to 150 subjects will be enrolled at four (4) clinical research sites in the United States. Subjects will wear two Sensors of three unique sensor lots. 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 8 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 eight (8) scheduled visits to the clinical study site, including the Enrollment/Screening Visit (Visit 1). Subjects will have five (5) in-clinic visits during which intravenous blood draws and YSI reference testing will occur.

    Subjects will wear the FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System and will receive no treatment except for safety purposes.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. System Performance with respect to YSI reference venous plasma sample measurements. [ Time Frame: Approximately 35 hours ]
    System performance will be characterized with respect to YSI reference venous plasma sample measurements.

  2. System Related adverse device effects [ Time Frame: Up to 51 days ]
    System will be characterized by Adverse Device Effects and Serious Adverse Device Effects experienced by study participants.
