1. What do I need the diasend® Uploader for?
If you would like to upload values from your diabetes device(s) to your personal diasend® Account from home, you will need to use our diasend® Uploader software. This software will then allow you to transfer all the values from your devices to your diasend® account, so you and your healthcare provider can review the values.
If you don’t have the diasend® Uploader installed on your computer yet, you can follow the steps as described below. Compatible operating systems are Windows 8 and 10.

To start the installation process go to "UPLOAD" inside your diasend® account at: www.diasend.com

The windows shows the download progress in %. Once the download is complete, you can click on the down arrow in the window. Please select “run file”.
What to do when the grey download window has disappeared?
Please go to the left corner where you see a magnifying glass next to the Windows flag. Write “diasend® Uploader” and press Enter. Now the file should appear showing “.exe” at the end. Please click on it and select “run file”.
