Ok so who all has a g4?? waiting for them to put up you tube new training videos this weekend??
fedex confirmation today !! please be here before Thanksgiving ;)
Started on mine yesterday. Have been manually testing since DX 4 years ago. Barring the snafu with a bad initial sensor (failed after 5 hours it's been decent so far. Within 10 points of dual FS test on Freestyle and Accucheck.
My G4 has been sitting in my room for a while now since I'm waiting to meet with a trainer and rep. I'm really eager to just do it myself and get started with the DVD and user guide. How many of you have started the system on your own? Would you guys recommend waiting for my appointment date(another 2 weeks from today)or have you all found it to be straight forward. Just an FYI, this is my first CGM. Thanks
I am a little disappointed with the G4. I was hoping I was going to get less ???, but alas on the very first sensor it happened. Dexcom is good about replacing them, but it is so frustrating. Also, I was alarmed that I was low at night when I really wasn't. Again I was hoping that would have been improved somehow, too. I don't like how much bigger it is on my body either and that the case needs to be opened to view. The positives would be the size of the receiver and the distance the signal can go.
I hear ya, Megan!
I think I like the old one better the more I use this new one.
So, tell me. Has anybody tried the old attachments with the new sensor? I am curious if we can still use the old stuff from the closet or are those $400 worth of history?
Earlier in this thread it was noted there is no compatibility between the 7+ and G4.
Thanks, M! I am still learning how to use the site. I apologize for redundancy.
Mine is on order. I'm just wondering what quirks there will be and hopefully all of you can tune me in! Any suggestions?
