Once the device drivers are downloaded and installed, you can plug in a compatible device using the corresponding cable and start uploading data.

Things to note before uploading:

  • LibreView is compatible with Abbott Diabetes Care devices only.

  • Make sure the device's battery is charged and the device screen shows "computer mode" when plugged into a USB port.

  • Make sure you have the right USB cable for your device. A cable that you use for a different device may not work.

Uploading a USB Device:

  1. Connect your compatible device to a USB port on to your computer using the appropriate cable.

  2. Click the Select toUpload button

  3. Once the data is uploaded, the reports will automatically open

Note: When you upload a device, you may need to allow your browser to access the Device Drivers file. Save time by ticking the box so your browser will remember your selection before selecting “Allow” or “Launch application”.

Note: If your healthcare professional uses LibreView, they will also be able to upload the data from your device during your appointments.

Understanding Reports

IMPORTANT: Work with your healthcare professional to understand your reports. LibreView provides a standard set of information and graphs relating to your diabetes management and is only one part of understanding your glucose patterns.

Use the report labels and legends to understand your reports. Additional Information is provided below:

  • Glucose Management Indicator (GMI) uses average Sensor glucose data. GMI can provide an indication of the current state of a your glucose management when used in conjunction with your entire glucose management program. Your laboratory A1C may be different then your GMI, and should be discussed with your health care team.

  • In reports other than those with specific fixed standards, the glucose values are labeled as high when higher than 250 mg/dL (13.9 mmol/L) and low when lower than 70 mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L) by default. The default target range is set for 70-180 mg/dL (3.9-8.0 mmol/L). These ranges can be adjusted for certain reports, other than the standard reports, which have specifically selected target ranges.

  • The target glucose range is displayed on some glucose graphs and is used to calculate Time in Target and Time in Range, except where standard ranges are applied.

  • Sensor data captured is the percentage of possible Sensor data the device recorded from scanning your Sensor. To maximize this percentage, wear your Sensor for the entire timeframe and scan as per Sensor instructions.

  • Sometimes information may be missing from reports if:

    • You did not wear the Sensor for the entire timeframe.

    • You did not scan at least once every 8 hours.

    • You did not enter food and/or insulin information in your device.

    • You changed the time on the device.

    • There was an excess of information to include in the report.
