How do I add a BG meter to my t:connect account?

NOTE: The latest version of the Mac uploader does not support BG meter uploads.

Uploading data from a BG meter gives you a more complete view of your diabetes data by including BG readings that may not have been entered into your pump.

  • OneTouch® Verio®IQ (LifeScan®)
  • OneTouch® UltraMini® (LifeScan®)

  • Accu-Chek® (Aviva Roche®)*
  • Accu-Chek® Compact Plus (Roche®)*
  • FreeStyle® Lite® (Abbott Diabetes Care)
  • FreeStyle® Freedom Lite® (Abbott Diabetes Care)

*Accu-Chek® Aviva and Accu-Chek® Compact Plus are not currently supported on Mac® OS X®.
