Dexcom Users

For users of a Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring ("CGM") device

Just as a reminder with the recent release of the new Dexcom G4 to the US market--it is NOT okay to post about previous models or older sensors as being 'for sale' on this site.

It is a violation of the Terms of Use because it is a prescription device, and any such efforts will unfortunately be removed.

We encourage you to donate supplies to non-profits such as the Charles Ray III Diabetes Association (, which accepts unexpired glucometer and insulin pump supplies, or alternatively you may talk to your physician's office or other local medical group to discuss donating them to those in need of assistance.

Thank you all for kindly refraining from this activity.

update ... I was able to download the Dexcom Studio
Software, including my sensor use for the past 7 days ... a breakthrough for this unsavvy computer gal :)

I joined :) and very happy with my DexcomG4 .I hope to find a discussion on downloading the sensor results without having to call the Technical Support line .

I'm in a group on FB called T1D's-PIF, it's a pay it forward group. Before FB I switched over from Regular and Lente insulin to Humalog and Lantus I had a bunch of leftover vials of the old stuff. I ended up giving them to a yahoo group of people who had diabetic cats. I did not want to waste it. Now I either give it to the pay it forward group or I ask my CDE at the clinic if she has anyone who might be able to use it.

Pay it Forward-Diabetics only! is the title. Type it in the FB search box. Good luck.

Ellie: I just looked and I cannot find the Facebook page you mentioned. Please share with us more information such as the link. Thanks.

Facebook has a pay it forward diabetes group to freely share supplies.

Comment by lh378 on September 21, 2014 at 9:58am

Meda-Kay that sounds like a good method. NP or CDE may have more contacts and more time with patients. Endo's and MD's (at least my experience) have virtually no time, just a fast 15 minute visit.

Comment by Meda-Kay on September 21, 2014 at 9:28am
When I've had supplies that I can no longer use, like when I went from Injection to the pump, I gave the supplies to my endo's Np and she gave them to patients she knew were having financial issues and needed supplies.

I truly believe that is a shame also. I know that people are out there begging to get them and cannot through insurance, etc problems. Not only that but it is wrong. I'm sure alot of us have equipment that others who are in need could use. There ought to be a group out there that handles this and gets the product to the right people. People who Need the help!

Comment by lh378 on September 21, 2014 at 7:23am

@McScik, that is a shame. There is something wrong with the "system" when good intentions/acts are refused in the manners that you encountered. There are definitely people who could use them. Perhaps you may want to post it to this DOC?
