Whether you’re using a reader or the FreeStyle LibreLink* app,† scanning frequently is a good habit to get into.
Scanning with the app:
Turn on your reader to start a new sensor. Hold the reader within 1.5 inches of the sensor to scan.‡
Note: For the first 12 hours of use, confirm sensor readings with a blood glucose test before making treatment decisions.
Scanning with the reader:
Scanning at least once every 8 hours saves your glucose history on the app.†
The app† also has a Logbook feature to add notes when you scan. Use it to track food, activity, insulin, and any medication you take.
*The FreeStyle LibreLink app is only compatible with certain mobile devices and operating systems. Please check our compatibility guide for more information about device compatibility before using the app. Use of the FreeStyle LibreLink app requires registration with LibreView.
†At this time, the FreeStyle Libre 2 system is cleared by the FDA for a reader and a sensor. The FreeStyle Libre 2 system is designed for use with the FreeStyle Libre 2 app, which is currently under FDA review.
‡The reader can capture data from the sensor when it is within 1 cm and 4 cm of the sensor.
