Remote Options

I once heard someone describe watching Loop is like being on the side of a river watching it flow by. But diabetes is about more than in-the-moment updates for meals and glucose corrections.

There are a number of options for viewing Loop data remotely and collecting historical information to assist in managing the long-term needs for our “friend”.
