I would like to know is there a Web Page for Diabetics to use to send information, such as blood sugar information from your meter, to some Professional that can look at it and give you information which could be very helpful, especially when one travels around the country and would like to be able to get a Medical answer if they see that ones sugar is in a danger level.
Currently, we're unaware of any direct method to link from your meter's memory to the internet, although there are numerous software programs that can allow you to transfer the data from the meter to your hard disk of a IBM-compatible personal computer. See Computerizing Your Meter for examples.
Some of these programs allow you to "export" the data or otherwise attach the data to your e-mail program, thus allowing it to be sent over the internet to your doc's office (assuming that they have an e-mail connection!). Then, either using the same software program, or a database program like dBase or Access, they should be able to review your meter's data.
