Cannot remember which pump you have Plumb.  Is it a Roche one?  Their software stinks.

I used diasend with a Libre sensor and it was very easy, but my Combo pump uses blue tooth and not a USB lead and I haven't tried to use Diasend with it.  At my last DSN appointment there were 2 of them there and neither of them could get it to work.  Though the somewhat more qualified ones at pump clinic seem to have no problems with it!

Roche pumps use infrared to communicate with a computer Patti - they only use Bluetooth to communicate with their matched pump.

OK sorry Sedge, you are  right, whatever, it's a pain in the bum to get it to work!

Diasend/Glooko is very easy to use and accepts data from a wide variety of diabetes devices (many BG meters, Libre, Roche pumps, Omnipod etc).

I don't use it a lot, but it has decent BG display options, and I am hoping (as promised) they open the door to download Medtronic pumps soon at which point I will gladly drop Medtronic's Carelink software which is teeth-grindingly awful.

hi Plumb
I use diasend for my pump and part time use of Libre too-- i find it very useful  and I also use it in context of pump clinic appointments -- I always send an email to my DSN the day before an appintment and when i am in with the endocrinologist -- all my results are up on screen.

hope this helps.

Doesn't help on Roche pumps Paul.  Getting them to "talk" to a computer at all is a nightmare!

Yes, but getting the infra-red dongle to actually DO anything is very difficult.  Lost mine, no idea where it is... too much trouble!

I have had limited success using Diasend also.  However many people on various facebook groups seem to be quite pleased with it.  I could never get my pump to 'talk' to their website.

Mine has always worked perfectly well with both pumps once you find the exact distance to place it away from the communicator thingy, but it's finding the exact distance that is the main problem both individually at home and at the hospital, but Debbie, the nurse that does everyone's downloads has it down to a fine art by now, as do all of the DSNs.

Practice makes perfect.  It would be interesting to see what other software offers though to see if I think it's better in some way or another so perhaps I'll try it if I ever have charge of another puter again - Pete won't even let me activate MS Office on this one.  In some ways that's probably good because I know very well I would have instantly offered to sort the Income Tax spreadsheet you need to keep for Gift Aid purposes for a charity, for the Prostate Cancer charity we are Trustees of  Yes it's the Treasurer's job but he is 80 this year and not exactly computer proficient whilst still being mentally very alert in virtually all other ways.  It just rankles when we eg. collected £551 last Saturday and had all of it been Gift Aided, that would be +25% so nearer £700.  We actually spent £1,480 on the testing not counting the cost of the stationery we use - it costs us virtually £15 per test.  Grr!

Thank you all for your input but I think I will not bother. As it means more bits such as a smart pic and silly me thinking it could be just plug and play. I will go back to using the back of cereal box😃
