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.

Michale's comment, about syringes, reminds me....soem years ago, before it was common to travel to China, I had to clear in at a relatively small coastal town, while on a business trip. When the local customs officials saw abotu 100 syringes, in my luggage, they got really excited; probably anticipating the promotions they'd receive for apprehending this "western drug smuggler". Their dismay was palpable when I produced an authoritive letter, in Chinese, explaining my need for all this medical stuff. At that time, disposeables were a black market item!

I get more hassle (if any) for my syringes!

Dexcom sent me a letter to show to TSA about a year ago. It confirms that the device is safe for flight.

I fly constantly and have never had to use the letter.

Comment by Allen on April 2, 2012 at 6:23am

no you do not have to turnt he receiver off in-flight. There are exceptions for medical devices.

Comment by Marci on April 2, 2012 at 6:21am
But you have to turn the receiver off while your in flight because it uses radio waves to transmit right?
Comment by MikeO on April 2, 2012 at 5:35am

Massimo - one hint that I've used many times. If I know I'll be flying a little ahead of time, I make sure to use my abdomen as my sensor site. That way if TSA wants to see it, I can just lift my shirt and reassure them it’s nothing dangerous. Otherwise if it’s in your leg or a hard to reach spot on your arm, you have to go into a room and get partially undress just to show them the sensor.

Thanks!

Comment by jrtpup on April 2, 2012 at 4:41am

Yes, and yes. I've flown with it many times.

Comment by Massimo on April 2, 2012 at 4:38am

Hi, does anybody know if one can wear their sensor on an aircraft? Do they allow to carry your transmitter with you during a flight?

Sorry for the basic question, but I didn't manage to find the answer on the forum

Comment by onesaint on April 1, 2012 at 9:35pm

I do, but only after 25+ days. I try to keep it to <21 days for that reason.
