FreeStyle Libre 3


FreeStyle Libre 3

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 device or Reader 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.


  • 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

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 for safety info.
