the #1 continuous glucose monitor worldwide! Discover the FreeStyle Libre 14 day system Get ready to make fingersticks† a thing of the past!
What is it?
The freestyle libre 14 day system flash glucose monitoring system sensor is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) 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 levels every minute.
How do you use it?
Use your smartphone‡ or handheld reader to scan the glucose sensor with a painless,1one-second scan to replace fingersticks.†

Each painless,1 one-second scan shows:
Want to trade in routine fingersticks† for continuous data points?
Use the handheld reader or smartphone‡ to scan the sensor as often as you like, even through clothing.II
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.
Convenience Compact, lightweight, and includes a built-in FreeStyle Precision Neo test strip port for blood glucose testing.
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 hour glucose history.
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.††
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.
The FreeStyle Libre 14 day system sensor
Small size and comfortable to wear1 About the size of 2 stacked US quarters, the sensor may be scanned through clothing.||
Painless application1 Painless1 and easy to apply. A very thin filament sits just under the skin to measure interstitial fluid.
Accurate5 sensor readings No fingerstick calibration required, and the system has no interference with medications containing acetaminophen.6
Water resistant# Stays on the body for up to 14 days, and can be worn while swimming,# showering, or exercising.
Continuous monitoring Measure your glucose every minute, and stores glucose readings every 15 minutes**
Getting started with the sensor
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
• Open the sensor pack by peeling off the lid completely. Unscrew the cap from the sensor applicator and set the cap aside.II II
• 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 system User Manual.
* Fingersticks are required if your glucose alarms and readings do not match symptoms or when you see Check Blood Glucose symbol during the first 12 hours.†Notifications will only be received when alarms are turned on and the sensor is within 20 feet of the reading device.
Indications and Important Safety Information
Freetyle Libre 14 day System: FreeStyle Libre 14 day Flash Glucose Monitoring system is a continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices indicated for replacing blood glucose testingand 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 (age18 and older) with diabetes. The system is intended for single patient use and require a prescription. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Remove the sensor before MRI, CT scan, X-ray, or diathermytreatment.
