Hello all dexcom user's, I've had my dexcom since April and after the first big issue of keeping the sensor on, via your suggestions, SKIN TAC saved the day! Now my issue is wearing the dexcom (receiver) when wearing a dress. I'd love to hear suggestions of how people keep it attached, because obviously in my purse doesn't work. Anyone find an armband that might work? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
my daughter wears her purse as a cross body, will the receiver pick up ok in there?
Hi there Wiffy,
I started w/my Dexcom in January. Someone in the class showed me their waist carrier and I LOVE IT. http://www.spibelt.com/ is the website. It is great. I forget I have it on. Very comfy all day and in bed. Hope that helps. Best of luck. Mine is pink plaid BTW.
SPIBELT means small personal item belt BTW.
Hmmm... I don't wear dresses alot. Might not work w/a dress. You can put it in your bra maybe? Sorry.
This is what my son wears, but obviously he doesn't need a dress option either. It is awesome for sports though!
Which reminds me of last month when I had my cellphone in my swimsuit and didn't notice until I had been in the pool for 30 minutes!! I put it in a gbag of rice and it came back fine the next day. Unbelievable! Good to know if you swim w/Dexie or drop her in the commode. LOL.
I wear my receiver in a belt clip like a cellphone.
As far as the transmitter, I wear mine VERTICALLY on my belly way off to the side.
If I don't have any pockets, I usually do one of two things: stick it in my bra or wear a small purse that I hang from my shoulder or around my neck and shoulder. This is also where I put my pump. People really don't pay any attention to the clear plastic tube coming out of my neckline area. I have several small cloth bags made by folks from Laos/Cambodia. My latest, a black Harley purse, is a perfect fit for Dexie, pump and some glucose tabs.
You put it in your bra? I wear my pump in between my breasts vertically via the clip. Where do you put the receiver? I saw Roxie004 put it on the side, but wow, isn't that a quite a large bump that gets in the way?
Think i will try spibelt, and maybe attach a wristband and wear it in forearm? kind of out there, but then I will feel/hear alarms. when I did have it in purse, i always missed the alarms which was not a good thing. Or the thigh holders, will the pump holders be large enough for the dexcom, this thing is larger than my pump...
