What is it?

The FreeStyle Libre 14 day system is a continuous glucose monitoring system consisting of a smartphone app or a handheld reader and a glucose sensor worn on the back of the upper arm.

How does it work?

The sensor uses a thin, flexible filament inserted just under the skin to measure glucose every minute.

How do you use it?

Use your smartphone or handheld reader to scan the glucose sensor with a painless,1 one-second scan to replace fingersticks.

Fingersticks are required for treatment decisions when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol, when symptoms do not match system readings, when you suspect readings may be inaccurate or when you experience symptoms that may be due to high or low blood glucose.

What your FreeStyle Libre 14 day reader can show you

Sensor Glucose Readings


The Sensor Glucose Readings screen appears after you use the reader or smartphone to scan your sensor. Your reading includes your current glucose reading, a glucose trend arrow indicating which way your glucose is headed, and a graph showing your 8 hours glucose history.

Daily patterns


A graph showing the pattern and variability of your sensor glucose over a typical day. The thick black line shows the midpoint of your glucose readings. The gray shading represents a range of your sensor readings.

Note: Daily patterns needs at least 5 days of glucose data.

Low glucose events


This view provides information about the number of low glucose events measured by your sensor. The total number of events is displayed above the graph. The bar graph displays the low glucose events in four different 6-hour periods of the day. Use the arrows to view your glucose data collected over the last 7, 14, 30, or 90 days. Low glucose events are recorded when glucose readings are lower than 70 mg/dL for longer than 15 minutes.

Time in target


Shows the percentage of time your sensor readings were above, below, and within your target glucose range.

Visual alerts


If your glucose reading is rapidly changing, below 70 mg/dL, or projected to be below 70 mg/dL or if there is no glucose number or trend arrow, you will see a visual alert, the Check Blood Glucose symbol. When you see this symbol, do a blood glucose test before making treatment decisions.

Choosing the site

Select an area on the back of your upper arm, avoiding areas with moles, scarring, or recent insulin injections.††

Select a different site than the one most recently used.

Preparing your skin

Preparing your skin is an important step toward ensuring adhesion. Our sensor adhesion guide in our Support section suggests solutions to help overcome common skin surface conditions.

Applying the sensor

The sensor pack and sensor application are packaged as a set (separately from the reader).‡‡

Applying the sensor

List Icon Image

Open the sensor pack by peeling off the lid completely. Unscrew the cap from the sensor applicator and set the cap aside.§§

List Icon Image

Line up the dark mark on the sensor applicator with the dark mark on the sensor pack. On a hard surface, press down firmly on the sensor applicator until it comes to a stop.ǁǁ

List Icon Image

Place the sensor applicator over the prepared site and push down firmly until the sensor is in place.¶¶

List Icon Image

Make sure the sensor is secure after application.## Put the cap back on the sensor applicator. Discard the used sensor pack and sensor applicator per local regulations.

Indications and Important Safety Information

FreeStyle Libre 14 day system: FreeStyle Libre 14 day Flash Glucose Monitoring systems are continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices indicated for replacing blood glucose testing and detecting trends and tracking patterns aiding in the detection of episodes of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, facilitating both acute and long-term therapy adjustments in persons (age 18 and older) with diabetes. The systems are intended for single patient use and require a prescription.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment.

WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS: Do not ignore symptoms that may be due to low or high blood glucose, hypoglycemic unawareness, or dehydration. Check sensor glucose readings with a blood glucose meter when Check Blood Glucose symbol appears, when symptoms do not match system readings, or when readings are suspected to be inaccurate. The system does not have alarms unless the sensor is scanned, and the system contains small parts that may be dangerous if swallowed. The system is not approved for pregnant women, persons on dialysis, or critically-ill population. Sensor placement is not approved for sites other than the back of the arm and standard precautions for transmission of blood borne pathogens should be taken. The built-in blood glucose meter is not for use on dehydrated, hypotensive, in shock, hyperglycemic-hyperosmolar state, with or without ketosis, neonates, critically-ill patients, or for diagnosis or screening of diabetes. When using FreeStyle LibreLink app, access to a blood glucose monitoring system is required as the app does not provide one. Review all product information before use or contact Abbott Toll Free (855-632-8658) or visit www.freestylelibre.us for detailed indications for use and safety information.

FreeStyle Libre 2 system: The FreeStyle Libre 2 Flash Glucose Monitoring System is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device with real time alarms capability indicated for the management of diabetes in persons age 4 and older.*

WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS*: The System must not be used with automated insulin dosing (AID) systems, including closed loop and insulin suspend systems. Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermy treatment. Do not take high doses of vitamin C (more than 500 mg per day), as this may falsely raise your Sensor readings. Failure to use the System according to the instructions for use may result in missing a severe low blood glucose or high blood glucose event and/or making a treatment decision that may result in injury. If glucose alarms and readings from the System do not match symptoms or expectations, use a fingerstick blood glucose value to make diabetes treatment decisions. Seek medical attention when appropriate and contact Abbott Toll Free (855-632-8658) or visit* www.freestylelibre.us for detailed indications for use and safety information.
