The article discusses issues of continuous monitoring of glycemia using the Flash monitoring system (FreeStyle Libre) in patients with type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus on insulin. The authors consider in detail the benefits of continuous monitoring of glycemia, its impact on the risks of hypoglycemic states, glycemia variability, and changes in the quality of life. The side effects and technical problems asso-ciated with the use of the Flash monitoring system are discussed.
