Why does it sometimes take so long to upload insulin pumps?

Insulin pumps contain a considerably larger amount of data than glucose meters, which is why pumps generally take longer to upload/transmit compared to glucose meters. Some insulin pumps also use infrared connection to transfer data, which is a slower method of transmission than via a cable.

For pumps with infrared connection, it is not unusual that uploads can last for up to 10 minutes.
