How do I sync my blood glucose (BG) meter using the MeterSync Blue?

The MeterSync Blue is used with most meters to sync data to Cornerstones4Care® powered by Glooko app. There are three configurations for using the MeterSync Blue:

  • Most meters require the MeterSync Blue + the standard 3.5mm cable (included with the MeterSync Blue).
  • Some meters require the MeterSync Blue + the standard 3.5mm cable + 2.5mm adapter (included with the MeterSync Blue).
  • Some meters require the MeterSync Blue via infrared technology. The MeterSync Blue infrared window is located on the top of the MeterSync Blue for use with these meters.
