For users of a Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring ("CGM") device

Just as a reminder with the recent release of the new Dexcom G4 to the US market--it is NOT okay to post about previous models or older sensors as being 'for sale' on this site.

It is a violation of the Terms of Use because it is a prescription device, and any such efforts will unfortunately be removed.

We encourage you to donate supplies to non-profits such as the Charles Ray III Diabetes Association (http://www.cr3diabetes.org), which accepts unexpired glucometer and insulin pump supplies, or alternatively you may talk to your physician's office or other local medical group to discuss donating them to those in need of assistance.

Thank you all for kindly refraining from this activity.

Well, there are a bunch here but I don't see the set I have. Any one would probably work though.

Comment by jrtpup on January 9, 2012 at 10:43am

Don't remember the name. They came in a pack with 4 locators and one remote, fairly inexpensive. The locators are color coded as are the buttons on the remote. It's saved my a** many times LOL

I'll look on Amazon and post if I find them.

Really? You may be the answer to my prayers! Do you know the name of it?

Comment by jrtpup on January 9, 2012 at 9:11am

I got some locator thingies from Amazon for my dex. They work great if you're within about 10 feet, so I just walk around the house pressing the button LOL. A white case would be nice.

After searching many, many times for my Dexcom which seems to blend in with Everything(!) cause it has a grey color, I'm going to get a bright pink or yellow cover and then I'm going to install a locator button on it so it beeps loudly, so I don't lose my mind! LOL

I cut 4 strips for the edges, too cheap to use enough to make it with a template ;)

Comment by Colleen in NH on December 30, 2011 at 11:46am

Jennifer - nope - no tape over the sensor.
Here's one way...

It is ok to put Opsite Flexifix tape over the sensor?

Comment by MikeO on December 20, 2011 at 8:26pm

I was told any amount of Tylenol will throw it off. I forgot once and had readings just like your, e.g., it read in the300's when I was really in the 140's.

Comment by Carolyn A. on December 20, 2011 at 7:47pm

How much tylenol does it take to throw it off? Does it make it go high or low? Anyone?
