I have seen the posts proposing "hacking" into the data transmission between the devices.
Frankly, I'd be happy if someone would point me towards some useful Excel (or whatever) macros which would help me parse the CGM & other data reported by my pump.
I have a Medtronic Minimed Paradigm Revel 723 + CGM. I can upload the pump's data to Medtronic's www.carelink.com and use their site to generate various reports. While that is certainly nice to have, I seem to have questions which I think the Carelink reports have no interest in addressing.
I wonder about such things as
- How accurate is my CGM?
- When did I calibrate & what effect did it have?
- Are my calibration factors consistent or not?
- Does it matter if they are or aren't?
Basically a lot of variations on "What the heck is going on here?".
One of the things Carelink does do ... and I am frankly very surprised they support this ... is let you download your previously uploaded pump data in a CSV file. So, in a sense, all the data is already available ready to be crunched. I just lack the tools and/or skills to do it.
Has anyone else already looked into creating tools to crunch a pump's data to derive more useful reports than what we currently get from the manufacturers?
