  • Introduction

    You now know all about the buttons on the diabetes manager. Now, let's put those buttons to work! This lesson focuses on the diabetes manager Set-up Wizard. The Wizard walks you through a number of tasks which you will not do often, however, they are important for the system to be able to provide you information specific to your needs. These tasks include selecting time and date, language and other settings that will make it easy for you to review data displayed by the diabetes manager. You must complete the tasks in the Set-up Wizard before you can use the diabetes manager. Here's how.

    We're off to see the Wizard!
