TheraSense, Inc. of Alameda, California, received word on December 13, 2000 that its FreeStyle blood glucose monitor has received FDA clearance for testing on the upper arm, thigh, calf and anywhere on the hand. The FDA had recently cleared the FreeStyle for testing on the forearm.

“We believe the additional testing sites for FreeStyle will further promote increased blood glucose testing,” said Mark Lortz, president and CEO of TheraSense. “Now people have many options to test their glucose, making it easier to take better control of their diabetes and enjoy a healthier life.”
