With ongoing travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines, here is how the FreeStyle Libre digital ecosystem supports you and your healthcare professional to connect remotely, securely, with free access through LibreView.
LibreView is a secure, cloud-based diabetes management system where you can grant 24/7 access of your glucose data to your healthcare professional, without you needing to travel for a face to face appointment. LibreView allows the healthcare professional to assess your data and provide you with the appropriate medical advice and care you need via a video/phone appointment (telehealth) where available.
