FreeStyle Libre 3 System

CGMs have made us used to getting readings every two-or three minutes...But getting a reading every single minute? That's what make the FreeStyle Libre 3 remarkable! With the FreeStyle Libre 3 system, you’ll reap the benefits of Abbott’s years of expertise in the continuous glucose monitor (CGM) field.

This system still delivers the reliable*, fingerstick-free readings their CGM systems are known for. But instead of manually scanning your sensor whenever you want to get results, you’ll receive automatic glucose updates on your smart devices via Bluetooth. Best of all, the FreeStyle Libre 3 system’s sensor is approximately the size of two stacked pennies - making it the smallest and thinnest CGM sensor in history.

The FreeStyle Libre 3 system may be covered by your insurance. To see if you qualify, choose “insurance/Medicare” from the drop-down menu or call us at 877-840-8218. This product is not yet available for Medicare patients.

Features

  • Approved for use by patients four years old and up
  • Sensor communicates with phone within a 33-foot range
  • No need to worry about going out of range - data is also stored on sensor
  • See your sensor data from the past 12 hours on your phone
  • Sensors still last for 14 days

Important Safety Information

Failure to use FreeStyle Libre 2 or FreeStyle Libre 3 systems as instructed in labeling may result in missing a severe low or high glucose event and/or making a treatment decision, resulting in injury. If glucose alarms and readings do not match symptoms or expectations, use a fingerstick value from a blood glucose meter for treatment decisions. Seek medical attention when appropriate or contact Abbott at 855-632-8658 or FreeStyleLibre.us for safety info.

If you’re looking for a less advanced FreeStyle Libre system, consider the FreeStyle Libre 2 system.

*High levels of vitamin C may affect the accuracy of sensor readings. Refer to the FreeStyle Libre 3 user manual for more information.

The FreeStyle Libre 3 cannot completely replace fingerstick tests. These tests are required to confirm any low or high sensor readings and when sensor readings do not match your symptoms.
