Getting Started with the
FreeStyle Libre System

Now you've ordered your FreeStyle Libre system there are a few things you can do to before they arrive to get ready and make sure you get the most out of the FreeStyle Libre system.

If you haven’t downloaded the FreeStyle LibreLink app and set up an account yet, do this first. Setting this up now means once your Sensor arrives you can apply it and start scanning with your phone straight away!

 

 

Don't have a compatible phone? Don't worry you'll be able to use the FreeStyle Libre reader. Check if you have a compatible phone.

Note: FreeStyle LibreLink and FreeStyle Libre Reader do not share data. For complete information on a device, be sure to scan your Sensor every 8 hours with that device; otherwise, your reports will not include all your data.
