The LibreLinkUp is a free Android smartphone app. That works in conjunction with the free to download LibreLink app. Which can be used alongside or instead of your existing FreeStyle Libre reader. It is a mobile app that allows parents and other caregivers to receive glucose readings from someone using LibreLink with their FreeStyle Libre sensor. The scanning phone needs the LibreLink app and the carer’s phone needs to download LibreLinkUp.
For example, if you are a parent or carer of a child with diabetes, your child may be at school but you might want to check their glucose levels. Now your child scans as usual using LibreLink on their smartphone and the results are automatically sent to the LibreLinkUp app on your smartphone.
The LibreLinkUp app allows you to remotely monitor your child’s glucose levels. From the app on your phone it’s also easy to share any results with up to 20 others (carers, teachers, healthcare professionals). What you will see on the app on your phone is your child’s latest glucose reading and a colour band indicating whether your child’s glucose is high, low in target or out of target and there will be a trend arrow showing if your child’s glucose is going up, down or changing slowly. It also shows up to the last 100 scans.
