What is it?

The FreeStyle Libre 14 day system is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system consisting of the FreeStyle LibreLink app* 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 levels every minute.

How do you use it?

Use your smartphone* to scan the glucose sensor with a one-second scan to replace fingersticks.

Each one-second scan shows:

Want to trade in routine fingersticks for continuous data points?

Use your smartphone* to scan the sensor as often as you like§, even through clothing.#

  • Reporting capability

    Stores 90 days of glucose data. Downloading data from the FreeStyle Libre 14 day system to the LibreView** software allows for even more in-depth analysis of your glucose data.

What your FreeStyle LibreLink app* can show you

Sensor Glucose Readings

The Sensor Glucose Readings screen appears after you use your 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 hour glucose history.

For illustrative purposes only. Not actual patient data.

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 light blue shading represents the 10-90 % range of your glucose readings. Dark blue shading represents the 25-75 % range.

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

For illustrative purposes only. Not actual patient 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 below the graph. The bar graph displays the low glucose events in different 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.

For illustrative purposes only. Not actual patient data.

Time In Target

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

Choosing the site

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

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 applicator are packaged as a set.¶¶

Applying the sensor

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

  • 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.***

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

  • 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.

Please refer to complete application for Applying Your Sensor in the FreeStyle Libre 14 day User's Manual.

‡ Medicare coverage is available for FreeStyle Libre 14 day systems for cell phone use if FreeStyle LibreLink is used in conjunction with the FreeStyle Libre 14 day readers. Patients must meet Medicare eligibility coverage criteria LCD L33822 (July 2021). Local Coverage Article: Glucose Monitor Policy Article (A52464), July 2021.

§ Glucose readings are not available during 1-hour warm-up, when sensor is too hot or too cold, or when you see an error, "LO" or "HI" message, or no current glucose reading.

ǁ The user's device must have internet connectivity for glucose data to automatically upload to LibreView.

¶ 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.

# The app can capture data from the sensor when it is within close proximity of the sensor. The proximity and orientation of the antenna in phones varies and the phone will have to be moved around to find the best position for scanning the sensor.

** The LibreView data management software is intended for use by both patients and healthcare professionals to assist people with diabetes and their healthcare professionals in the review, analysis and evaluation of historical glucose meter data to support effective diabetes management. The LibreView software is not intended to provide treatment decisions or to be used as a substitute for professional healthcare advice.

†† Sensor is water-resistant in up to 1 meter (3 feet) of water. Do not immerse longer than 30 minutes.

‡‡ Based on the sensor being replaced once every 14 days, and scanned at least once every 8 hours.

§§ Default range is 70-180 mg/dL. Consult with a healthcare professional on individual target glucose range.

ǁǁ Choose a site that is at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) away from an insulin injection site.

¶¶ CAUTION: The Sensor Pack and Sensor Applicator have the same sensor code. The sensor codes should be checked to ensure they match before using Sensor Pack and Sensor Applicator. Do not use Sensor Packs and Sensor Applicators with different Sensor codes together as this will result in incorrect glucose readings.

## Do NOT use if the Sensor Pack or the Sensor Applicator seem to be damaged or already opened. Do NOT use if past expiration date.

*** The Sensor Applicator contains a needle. Do not touch inside the Sensor Applicator or put it back into the Sensor Pack.

††† Do not push down on the Sensor Applicator until placed over prepared site to prevent unintended results or injury.

‡‡‡ Applying the Sensor may cause bruising or bleeding. If there is bleeding that does not stop, remove the Sensor, and apply a new one at a different site.
