Can a child use the FreeStyle Libre 3 app?

For children* with diabetes, starting the sensor with the FreeStyle Libre 3 app allows them to experience more of the system’s features. The app allows users to monitor their glucose and automatically share data from their phone to their caregivers through the LibreLinkUp app. Once connected, caregivers can remotely monitor the user’s glucose levels and be notified of any glucose alarms. This allows caregivers to support their child’s glucose management, so the child doesn’t have to monitor their glucose alone. In addition, those using the FreeStyle Libre 3 app on their phone can automatically share glucose data with their healthcare team.

* For children aged 4-12, a caregiver at least 18 years old is responsible for supervising, managing, and assisting them in using the FreeStyle Libre 3 system and interpreting its readings.
