My husband had 8 sensor failures within 3 days and dexcom support said it was the sensors. Since he is subject to radical sugar lows we became paranoid and convinced the tech support to send a new receiver with replacement sensors. We are awaiting the new receiver but we are concerned - he started using the Dexcom in August 2009 and yes we had sensor failures but not in a row. Has anyone else faced such problems? The Dexcom is great; but after you become dependent on it and it stops working and then they say it is sensors - well.
This site is very encouraging my husband has seen he is not the only one and doesn't feel like he is fighting a loosing battle.
Thank all of you for your inputs.
