New FreeStyle Libre 2
Friday, 22 April 2022
The new FreeStyle Libre 2 system will soon replace the current FreeStyle Libre system – both sensors and readers.
The FreeStyle Libre 2 retains all the easy-to-use features of the FreeStyle Libre, with the additional benefit of optional glucose alarms and improved accuracy.
While many people have already transitioned to the new system, for those of you have yet to make the change there is additional information below.
If you have questions or would like more information you can find it here or the Abbott Customer Care on 1800 801 478.
Automatic update of your NDSS access
NDSS registrants who currently receive subsidised FreeStyle Libre sensors under the CGM Initiative will be automatically updated to FreeStyle Libre 2 on 30 May 2022. You do not need to see your diabetes health professional or fill in a form.
From 30 May you will be able to start ordering Freestyle Libre 2 sensors through your preferred NDSS Access Point (usually your local pharmacy).
If you have any questions about NDSS access please call the NDSS Helpline on 1800 637 700.
Download the Freestyle Libre Link App
Download the FreeStyle LibreLink app from the Apple App Store or Google Play to your phone.
If you currently use the FreeStyle Libre reader and do not have access to a compatible phone then you can request a complimentary upgrade to the FreeStyle Libre 2 reader directly from Abbott.
