Upload data to the computer from Dexcom G6?

Hello everyone,
I have Type 1 Diabetes and using continuous glucose monitor Dexcom G6, my first sensor session is already over, so I have a previous data on my Dexcom G6, does anyone know if there is any way to upload data from Dexcom G6 to the computer? Could you please help how to do this?

Thank you.

Are you using Clarity?


Yes. I am using clarity.

When I clicked a link https://clarity.dexcom.com/, I saw two green buttons “Dexcom CLARITY for Home Users” and “Dexcom CLARITY for Clinics”. What button to click and what are the next steps?

Thank you in advance.


You click “”For Home User” and then, as I recall, it will prompt you to download and install the Clarity Uploader which is a program that will be installed on your computer.

You may want to check with your endo to see what they use. More of them are beginning to use Tidepool (available from tidepool.org). Tidepool is a third-party, not-for-profit project that can upload data from several companies’ CGM system.

Best of luck !


I am using a phone app, Dexcom G6, to track my numbers. Provided you setup your Dexcom account with Clarity, it is automatically uploaded continuously. As @John_S2 mentioned, you choose “For Home User”, https://clarity.dexcom.com/#/overview, although you will need to set up the account if you have’t already.

Also, you can share your numbers with your doctor’s office and with other people:

  • For your doctor or clinic, their office has a code that you can enter under Settings, then Share Data with New Clinic. This will avoid having to print or email information to them.

  • My spouse uses the Follow app to keep an eye on me, and I use it for myself as well, so I can see my numbers on devices other than my phone. You send your follower an email from the Dexcom G6 app, https://www.dexcom.com/faq/how-do-i-share-my-g6-glucose-data-followers

This is the worst video, but its their official one…


Thank you.

Also, this might be more than you need, I also have a smartwatch on which I can see my numbers all the time.

  • People that have an Apple phone can get an Apple watch, and that works very well with the app so that you have a variety of watch faces.

  • If you have an Android phone, like I do, you are limited in the choice of watches. It must be running Wear OS, and only a few manufacturers have that, the Fossil brand watches and Mobvoi. For myself, I purchased a Fossil 5 Carlyle, but considered the TicWatch E2, Pro 4G LTE, and the Pro 2020. Plus, I have a 5 year old ASUS ZenWatch 2 that I use as well, while the Fossil is charging.
