Continuing the discussion from Dexcom G5 Approval by FDA:
After reading the posts in the linked discussion, I decided to Google around because I was curious just what the heck Clarity actually is. However, since I do not use Dexcom I have no way of actually trying anything out. So this post is just a pointer to what I think I found. Feel free to to post updates on your experience if you wish.
The big caveat is that the links below may stop working if Dexcom decides to pull them while awaiting the ever enigmatic FDA approval.
Below is an excerpt from the introduction in the user guide PDF linked above.
About Dexcom CLARITY™
Dexcom CLARITY™ is a data management software program that allows the transfer of glucose data from CGM devices to remote servers for data management. Healthcare professionals in clinic settings, such as hospitals or medical offices, can use the software. Home users using personal computers in their home environments can also use the software.
After the glucose data is transferred to Dexcom CLARITY™, the information is displayed in charts and graphs to help users analyze trends and patterns in glucose levels. Reports can be saved and printed, and home users can email links to their reports to others.
My impression is that before you can use the app I am guessing that you first need to visit the CLARITY webpage, log in, and upload your data from your monitor? After you do that you can view it apparently either using the website or with the CLARITY app which was referenced in the linked discussion.
Below is a screenshot of the CLARITY webpage at the time I posted this, mostly because sometimes I just can’t shut myself up.
