I don't know what you mean by "often", but what I can tell you is that mine goes in spurts. Sometimes I can go days without it initializing and sometimes it happens two or three times in one day. I have been told that it is most often caused by static, although I cannot say this is true for sure. Mine often happens when I am putting it back in my pocket after reading, so it could very well be static. If you keep it in the rubbery cover that it came with, that should help. Hope this is helpful.
I do keep it in the "skin," and the Dexcom person said that might be the problem. Interesting - the pocket issue is something else he mentioned. Thanks for your info!
Thanks! I really dislike the leather case but...
I have the one with the plastic top. Yup, don't like it all.
There's an older style?? I'll have to call and ask about it.
No mention is made of humidity here. If in super dry environment, static can be a nuisance issue.
I have not seen that issue after a year plus running.
By initialize - you are seeing unit reset and delay and do 2 hour startup.
I would ensure you are keeping unit fully charged whne down to 1 bar on meter and not running flat out.
Are you getting static discharge shocks whne you walk around?
Well, yes, it's cold and the heat is on but we run humidifiers and haven't had any static issues in the house.
No 2 hour startup when it initializes.
It's always charged. I have the cord right next to my computer. :)
Thanks for replying!
It happened to me a couple of times in the last few weeks, both times I was putting it in my pocket but I never drew the connection.
My receiver initializes occasionally, usually when I am removing or returning it to my pocket. It happens less in the (humid) summer than in the (dry) winter. I received my first receiver in 2009 and it did not have the rubber skin. I had fewer reinitialization instances then.
Have had virtually no problem with this and have been on DexCom since 11/2009.
I have no idea what you're talking about, so I'm guessing I've never had this problem. Been on the Dex for almost 3 years.
