hi

I have had diabetes for well over 50 years and started using cgm 2.5 yrs ago-- navigator at 1st and had no problems with it and now dexcom.

When I exercise ( which is when you need cgm the most ) the dexcom starts working fine but stops at about 1/2 a mile, showing the 3 question mark sign, I am wondering if you runners or triathelete people have any secrets that keep the cgm working

I had no problem with navigator but i think that was because it communicated with the sensor by a different technology than the dexcom
thanks

Hi MFD: I have a Dexcom, I exercise a lot, and I have not had this problem during exercise. Now, I have gotten the dreaded ??? when I was pushing my sensor beyond 7 days. Hopefully another Dexcom user who has had this experience will chime in!
