Fixing the time settings on blood glucose (BG) meters and CGM receivers with endo.digital Uploader
This article assumes you have:
- An endo.digital account – If you don’t have an account, ask your healthcare provider to send you an invitation to endo.digital .
- Installed the latest version of the endo.digital Uploader. If you have not installed the endo.digital Uploader, you can download the latest version at https://dreamed-diabetes.com/uploader .
Please note: Insulin pumps are unable to support this feature and require manual updating on the pump.
endo.digital Uploader gives you the option to automatically correct the device time on your blood glucose (BG) meter or continuous glucose monitor (CGM) receiver if your device time is detected to be off by more than 15 minutes.
This detection is based on the time zone you’ve selected in endo.digital Uploader, and the time on your computer.
endo.digital Uploader can update the time on Dexcom CGM receivers, and adjust the time for past events, ensuring all your data is in sync with the rest of your diabetes events.
Past readings on your blood glucose meter cannot be adjusted. Most BG meters do not store when time changes occur, which prevents endo.digital Uploader from adjusting the time for past readings to keep your data in sync. Any blood glucose readings currently on your blood glucose meter will be uploaded with their existing time stamp.
Once the time on your blood glucose meter has been corrected, all future recordings will be more accurate, and BG meter data displayed in endo.digital Web will reflect the updated, correct time setting.
Please note: Trividia True Metrix glucose meters do not support the automatic time updating feature. Please visit their Customer Care website for information on manually updating the time on your glucose meter.
