I need your help. Does your Dexcom initialize often? Mine does and Dexcom is telling me that's normal.

Like Kim I'm not sure Ive ever seen my say "initializing"

Likewise, I have no idea of what this is.

What happened to me is that the Dex would make the loud alarm noise and turn off. I would have to restart the receiver. It did not make me go through the 2-hour sensor start.

One thing I hate about the Dex receiver is the loud noises it makes when it turns off and when you turn it back on.

Thanks All! Really!
Of course since posting this, it hasn't initialized once.
I really appreciate your comments as it will give me some "ammunition" the next time I speak with someone at Dexcom.

I saw mine initialize today - first time I recall

It was because I took he dex off for a week to scuba dive and the battery was totally dead - when I plugged it back in to charge the receiver started with Initializing. Which suggests that if you see that a lot - either you are letting it go too low on battery OR its resetting itself

I took Lathump's advice and switched to the leather case and my Dex has not initialized in two weeks. I am going to call Dex on Tuesday and ask about the earlier model case.

I had the same issues with the silicone case, when removing and placing back in my pocket. It is very dry here. I called Dexcom and they told me to put it in the "leather" case it came with and it hasn't happened at all with that. It is static related they tell me. No issues in the "leather case."

Now all I have to do is find the "leather" case.
Thanks!
