Installing Device Drivers

To upload glucose data into LibreView from a compatible reader within the FreeStyle Libre Portfolio or FreeStyle brand blood glucose meter, you must first complete the one-time download and installation of a device drivers file. The device drivers file makes sure that LibreView that recognizes the glucose monitoring device when it is plugged in to the computer. Make sure that you are using the most up-to-date version of your internet browser before starting the download.

  1. Click the Create 1-Time Report button

  2. In the window that appears, click on the Download button specific to your computer's operating system

  3. Wait for the file to download onto your computer

  4. Open the downloaded file by clicking on it and allowing it to run

Links to the latest LibreView Device Drivers are also available on the LibreView Support website. Search for the "Install LibreView Device Drivers" topic and follow the instructions to download and install the drivers.

Best Practices

  • Make sure you are logged in as the Local Administrator or have your administrator's username and password available when you are installing the device drivers.

  • Have a compatible glucose device on hand to test the device drivers once they are installed.

  • If you are part of a practice or hospital system, you may need to contact your IT team for assistance.

Uploading from Apps

LibreView Device Drivers are not required to upload data from FreeStyle LibreLink or other compatible mobile apps within the FreeStyle Libre Portfolio into LibreView. Data from a compatible mobile app can automatically upload to LibreView if there is an internet connection.

Uploading a USB Device

Once the device drivers are downloaded and installed, you can plug in a compatible reader within the FreeStyle Libre Portfolio or FreeStyle brand blood glucose meter using the corresponding cable and start uploading data.

Go to the Device Upload page and choose the appropriate option:

For a one-time report:

  1. Select Create 1-Time Report to create a report that is accessible in LibreView for 24 hours, contains no patient-identifying information, and is not saved in the LibreView database.

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

For a saved report:

  1. Select Create Report Linked to Patient to save the report to a patient's profile

  2. If this is the first time you are uploading this device, search for an existing patient or create a new patient. Once you associate a device to a patient, all data from that device will be automatically linked to that patient.

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

  4. Once the data is associated with a patient, it can be viewed anytime from the patient's Profile by going to Glucose History and clicking Glucose Reports.

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”.

Viewing Reports

  1. In a patient's profile under Glucose History, click the Glucose Reports button to see their data.

  2. Use the menu to navigate between the different available reports

You will see a different set of reports depending on the primary device selected:

  • If a compatible FreeStyle brand blood glucose meter is selected, you will see the Glucose Only reports: Snapshot,2 Daily Log, Modal Day

  • If the FreeStyle InsuLinx meter is selected, you will see the FreeStyle InsuLinx reports: Snapshot, Daily Log, Mealtime Patterns, Modal Day, Weekly Summary, Meter Details.

Understanding Reports

Use the report labels and legends to understand the reports. LibreView provides a standard set of information and graphs relating to diabetes management and is only one part of understanding glucose patterns. 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 person's glucose management when used in conjunction with the entire glucose management program. Laboratory A1C may be different than GMI, and it is important to use the A1C in conjunction with GMI and other reported metrics in diabetes management.

  • In reports other than those with specific fixed standards, the glucose values are labelled as high when higher than 250 mg/dL (13.9 mmol/L) and low when lower than 70 mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L). The target range is set for 70-180 mg/dL (3.9-10.0 mmol/L).

  • The target glucose range is displayed on some glucose graphs and is used to calculate Time in Range.

  • Sensor data captured is the percentage of possible sensor data the device recorded from your sensor. To maximize this percentage your patient should wear the sensor for the entire duration and follow your sensor user manual instructions.

  • If a patient has gaps in data on their glucose monitoring device, this information will also be missing from LibreView reports. Sometimes information may be missing from reports if:

    • The time on the device was changed.

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

Changing Report Settings

While viewing reports you can change the settings you'd like to use. You can also set default preferences for the reports by patient or Care Team member.

  1. You can change the report dates by clicking on the blue button that says Change Report End Date. The default setting will show data from the date of the most recent upload. Click Save to generate reports using the new settings.

  2. You can select or unselect the devices that are used in the report set by clicking the blue button that says Data Sources. The default setting will show data from all devices that have data in the reporting period and can be included in the report set. Click Save to generate reports using the new settings.

  3. You can select the reports, adjust target ranges, change report parameters and more by clicking the blue Report Settings button. Click Save to generate reports using the new settings.

To set new default report preferences, go to your Settings menu.

  1. Click the Settings Menu icon and go to Report Preferences

  2. Set your target ranges, glucose thresholds, and report display order for all reports. Not all reports have adjustable target ranges.
