What It Does: Data downloading software allows data from diabetes devices to be uploaded onto a central platform, usually on a computer or a smartphone. Some data downloading systems allow you to integrate data from multiple types of devices (CGMs, insulin pumps, blood glucose meters), whereas others are just for meter data.

As the use of telemedicine services increases, data uploading is becoming more important for sharing your blood glucose data with your healthcare team. Learn more about telehealth here.
