This is my third pump from MM and I did not read any of the instructions, but today I was looking at daily totals, insulin, carbs, etc. Where does it give you your average bloodsugar readings???

I always calculate my average BGs using my One Touch meter that came with my pump. I've found that's the easiest way to do it. Can you calculate average BGs with the revel pump (I'm not using the CGM at the moment)?

Press ACT, go to Utilities then scroll to Daily Totals, then Daily Average, enter how many days you want to calculate. After the screen appears press ACT to show your Sensor Glucose Average and press ACT again to view your Blood Glucose Average. Hope this helps. It took me a while to figure it out and I READ the book. LOL

Cool, it worked, thank you.

Ok, I am confused. I have the Revel (500 series) and I don't get any averages for BGs. I don't use a sensor, but instead use the meter that came with my pump, so just about all my BG results go directly to my pump. While I can calculate averages using the meter, I am not able to do so on my pump. When I go to UTILITIES-->DAILY TOTALS-->DAILY AVERAGE and then calculate my averages based on a certain number of days, there is no average BG.

Also, under the same menu, what is "CALCULATE AVC" mean?

Clearly, I don't read the manual.

Never mind...answered my own question. It's actually "AUC" and it stands for "area under the curve." It is the amount of time when BGs are outside of the pre-set range. Thank you, Google!

Wow, I got my pump in November and I dont think I even had a clue this was in the pump! I dont think we covered it in training, but may be wrong.
