CONNECT WITH YOUR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL REMOTELY

While LibreView is the best way to connect with your healthcare professional, you can also directly connect with them using the FreeStyle LibreLink app via text or e-mail.

In addition, remember that by using the LibreLinkUp app, you can invite your family/caregiver or anyone you like to also access your glucose data remotely, anytime. Visit LibreLinkUp App to see how to do this.

Using your phone and reader with the same sensor

You can choose to monitor your glucose levels with either the app, the reader or both. You can use the FreeStyle LibreLink app and the FreeStyle Libre reader with the same sensor, as long as you start the sensor with the reader first, and then scan the newly started sensor with your phone anytime after.

 

Remember that the FreeStyle LibreLink app and FreeStyle Libre reader do not share data with each other. For example, if you switch between your reader and the app, you may see gaps in your glucose data, which may affect the reports available through the reader, the FreeStyle LibreLink app, and LibreView.

 

It is important to continue scanning your sensor with either the app or the reader at least once every eight hours so you and your healthcare professional can get a complete picture of your glucose trends and patterns.

Yes. People with diabetes can use FreeStyle Libre sensors with the app to better understand the impact of actions like eating, exercise, and taking insulin based on their glucose levels.

What happens when I travel to different time zones, or when my phone changes time?

The app will display a clock icon on the glucose graph to indicate when there has been a time change. It is necessary to use the correct time for accurate reports. If your phone’s time is not set to update automatically, you will need to update your phone’s time settings in order to continue using the app.
