Connect your Dexcom Account to Tidepool
- Log in to your Tidepool Account
- Click your name at the top of the screen to open your profile, scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Connect with Dexcom”
- A new window will open to request you log in to your Dexcom account.
- Log in to your Dexcom account and authorize Tidepool to connect with Dexcom.
- Once authorized, your profile page will now show your data is being synced from Dexcom and your data will begin uploading from Dexcom Clarity to Tidepool. If you do not see your data after a minute, click the refresh button at the bottom of the page.
- Data transfer from Dexcom to Tidepool is not real-time. It takes 3 hours for your data to be visible in Dexcom Clarity, and up to an additional hour after that for your data to show up in Tidepool.
- If your connection status is "Login Expired", try disconnecting and reconnecting to Dexcom to reauthorize your connection to your Dexcom account.
- If you connect your Dexcom account, we will import everything, including any data gaps. This will replace the Dexcom data that you see, but we’ll store everything.
If you notice your data hasn’t uploaded from Dexcom to Tidepool recently, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate the problem.
