Thanks MegaMinxX. I took a look at it, and it would be a great tool, but looks like the "Personal" doesn't include OmniPod or Dexcom. Not sure why they would differentiate which devises talk between Clinic and Personal though. I'll keep an eye on that site for updates.
Any other thoughts?
I believe you can ask your physician for the clinic ID. That will give you access to your own Dexcom records (which I think should happen without asking!)
I was looking at DiaSend's list of compatible devices, and (surprisingly) Dexcom is not on it! They only have the Abbott CGM. Oh well.
I'll check with my doctor and see if they know of any softawre that picks up both.
You can upload the XML files of Dexcom and Omnipod to our Glucosurfer for analysis. I hope they did not change the XML format with the new generations of these devices. Otherwise we will have to make adjustments to make it work.
You can export your data to XML with the Abbott CoPilot and Dexcom software. Please make sure to remove your personal information from the XML files before the upload to our server. You can do this by opening the files with an editor for text files. Then search for your name or other personal information and delete or overwrite it with x. Just make sure that you will not change the structure of the file. The processing of the Dexcom data might take a while...
Hi, can you explain how to do this a little more in detail? I did not see Omnipod on your site as being compatible. I tried to write you via another site you have (I think) on Blogger, but am not sure it was successful. Thank you Holger. - Jennifer
To my knowledge there is no Dexcom extension available. But you can use the Glucosurfer to combine CoPilot and Dexcom data. For this you use the export feature in the CoPilot and Dexcom Software. As a result you will get two XML data files - one for the CoPilot and one for the Dexcom. You can open these files with a text editor to remove personal information about yourself (just xxx them out).
As a last step you can upload the data on the Glucosurfer site. On the tab "Diary" you will find the link import. Here you can upload one file after the other. It is not convenient but manageable I would say. The more data you export at once the less painful it gets. The processing of the Dexcom data will take a while...
My 5 year old son uses the Dexcom G4 CGM and the OmniPod pump and I was frustrated that there was no way to see all the data together.
Thanks to a few spare hours (those are rare indeed) - I wrote an program that takes the Dexcom data (XML export) and translates it into a file that can be imported by the CoPilot software.
This way, I can see all the glucose entries in CoPilot.
I do not know if anyone else would want to do the same, but just in case I created a website where you can upload the Dexcom file and download a CoPilot file ready to import into the CoPilot Software (version 4.2.0).
(appspot.com is Google's web hosting site in case anyone was worried bout the link)
Please let me know if you have questions, or if there are any issues with the conversion.
This is a great idea, but unfortunately after I downloaded the Dexcom XML file and translated it then hit the button to I got HTTP 500 Internal Server Error
