Who Is This Brian Bosh and What Is His Favorite Cookie?

photo 1Wow. Dexcom on Mac. With pie charts and line graphs. And reports. Thank you Kim, Jacquie, & Kerri! (For mentioning it on Facebook.)

And it is SO EASY.

For me, it went like this:

  1. Install Chrome. (If you don’t have it.) (It’s free.)
  2. Go to Chrome Store. (It’s like the App store.)
  3. Buy (FREE) app: Dexcom Upoader. Not sure why it didn’t show up in a search under “dexcom.”. This links to it. I got that link off of Six Until Me’s post re Brian Bosh‘s miracle invention.)
  4. <<Insert here some brief confusion of me not knowing I’d need to be using Chrome as my browser (instead of Firefox) in order to use a Chrome app.>>
  5. Using Chrome as your browser, plug your Dexcom receiver into your Mac. INTO YOUR MAC! Launch app.
  6. BOOM. Beautiful graphs for your edification.

Don’t worry about those 47’s. One wasn’t even true. He was like 112. Thank you, Brian Bosh!

    I thought you were showing us data from the bionic trial. Your charts are PERFECT!

      I’m trying to understand if my SDs are OK. I know you want it as close to zero as possible, but zero itself is impossible, but is this on a scale from 0 – 100? Googling.

    NFW!? Awesome! I am jacked beyond belief to set this up. Later, after all this other stuff I need to do. Never woulda known!

      Oh, and no way I’m posting daughter’s pie charts. It’s been an ugly couple months!

        I wasn’t experienced enough with pie charts to realize what prize-winning pies these are. Immediately post-post, ours turned ugly as well.
