Individuals with diabetes who use the FreeStyle Libre or FreeStyle Libre 14 Day systems can now monitor their glucose directly on their iPhones.
The now FDA-approved FreeStyle LibreLink app enables users to hold their iPhone near the FreeStyle Libre sensor to instantly capture and view real-time glucose levels. Users can evaluate their eight-hour glucose history and see a directional arrow indicating how their glucose has changed. The app also includes in-app reports that visualize trends to help people understand how well they are controlling their individual glucose levels.
“We’re committed to liberating people from the many hassles of diabetes management through our life-changing technology and tools,” said Jared Watkin, senior vice president, Diabetes Care, Abbott. “The FreeStyle LibreLink app is a digital health tool that integrates glucose data directly on a compatible smartphone so all of the mobile apps that people use every day are in one convenient place. This is another step forward in making glucose monitoring seamlessly fit into a patient’s daily lifestyle — helping them live a fuller, healthier life.”
