    The clinic ID is a public identifier they give out to all their patients. It does not allow anyone to log in to the clinic's account. It allows a patient to permit a given clinic to see that patient's data. The patient can revoke that permission at any time.

    Sounds like you signed up for a private version of Diasend, not the version designed for sharing your data with clinics and professionals. You will probably find that giving your password to your DSN violates your agreement with Diasend.

    I do not have a DSN so no worries in that department. As to who I share my password with or not as the case may be is my business and no one else.
    As I have already stated I had the choice of including a mythical clinic or staying private, which can be changed at any time I so choose. I don't choose so it stay's private.

    Good for you. But the OP, who both of us are advising, does have a DSN. And you advised him to share his password with his DSN, which is both unnecessary and wrong.

    Do you have a reference from Diasend to back that up? I'd be very surprised. Diasend specialise in appropriate security for confidential health data.

    Erm, I can read quite well so read the instructions as I registered on the site. Diasend is a programme sat up in the clouds, so if you are so inclined you can give your password to the queen, doubt she appreciate it though :)

    Spiker's right, & what's worse is that your advice (CarbsRok) that he do it all on his own - clearly whilst demonstrating a severe lack of understanding about the Diasend setup - at a time when he's been struggling with his diabetes is appallingly dangerous.

    One of the key benefits of getting Diasend access via a clinical team is that it enables an impartial medical professional the opportunity to review your pump activity alongside your BG results... This can be fundamentally eye opening to the person with diabetes when in the midst of a bad time and when trying to dig themselves out of it. I can vouch for this from personal experience.

    A little bit of 'Humble Pie' might go down well once in a while.

    Clearly you have misunderstood.

    I was not telling Reece to go it alone. I was just pointing out that you can set up diasend on your own with no problem.
    Now to me this would be rather obvious unless you intended to take your computer into the clinic for them to download the software for the uploader!
    Reece can access the info at home very easily as can the clinic.

    Reece needs all the help he can get at the moment so please do not twist around what I have said.

    What you are clearly telling Reece (the OP) to do, is share his Diasend password with his DSN. You have misadvised him. The better thing to do - and Carl has explained why - is for Reece to set his Diasend account up with the clinic ID(s) of his health care team. Instead you have misadvised him, advising him to break the terms and conditions of Diasend and jeopardise the security of his own confidential health care data. And you are totally intransigent about it.

    Please can we have an end to this bickering about diasend? We do not need to be pointed towards terms n conditions etc....

    I would personally far rather be interested in Reece and what he is doing to help himself and working with his Team of healthcare professionals.

    I'm sure you are all on for helping Reece but this is now at the point of bickering... And needs to be PM's between you all to sort out and then just post a definitive 'ruling'......

    At least you've remembered at some point that you didnt have your bolus with your meal, that's a big improvement on before when you wouldn't give yourself anything at all! Keep up the good work and things can only get better! I used to use a free app on my phone too called mySugr which is free to download which was good for keeping an eye on what's going on

    Brilliant news Reece, I also have the mysugr app as well and I email that direct to my DSN, she thinks the diabetes monster is great. Their is also an app called Insulin Timer and it reminds you to do set changes as well.
