Dexcom Users

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 (, 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.

I have the Asante Snap. It's working well for me, and it is simple to use. Can't compare it to anything else, however, as this is my first pump experience. I do look forward with the future integration with Dexcom, though I think it'll be more on a data/info level than anything else. Regardless, more data is always a good thing in my book!

I am wondering if any of you have tried the Asante Snap pump? If so, what were your impressions? I am starting a free trial today. I like that it will work with the G5 - hopefully next year!

He has a FB page called The Power Within. Every day there are useful posts about D. And he is the guru of getting the most out of Dex.

Dr. Stephen Ponder, who is T1 himself, has a presentation called Sugar Surfing, and he has put the slides on the web. Google Sugar Surfing -- he did a great job!!

Comment by James Type 1 diabetic on December 1, 2014 at 3:31pm


do you have any article or good video where they explain in detail all the possible blood glucose patterns you could catch with a dexcom? Ideally a complete article about it. like a comprehensive class in all the possible analyzes of your dexcom cgm data in every possible situation. and they should you example of dexcom graph with information for each pattern... like rebound, sommogy effect and all the other possible pattern even the less known and the ones I dont know myself..I want to become knowledgeable fast.

Thank you :)
