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.

Hey everyone, I always use my dexcom on my stomach but I want to try and put it on my arms or legs, but dont know exactly where to position it? Any advice??

Holy Dexcom Batman! That's the case I have and I never knew the clip swiveled LOL

I agree, onesaint, the LG VX8500 Verizon case is the best one available for Dexcom. They are becoming really hard to find, since that phone is rather old.

Thanks OS. Will check it out ;)
Comment by Sandy Palmer on October 12, 2011 at 10:01am
I just turn it to where the zipper is on top. So far so good
Comment by onesaint on October 12, 2011 at 9:36am
jrt, the one in the link has a swivel clip, so you can flip it horizontal if you so desire.
Comment by jrtpup on October 11, 2011 at 7:30pm
Doug, how's the clip? I find that when I get out of the car something happens between my thigh and the case and it gets pushed off. I fear that a vertical one will be even worse.

Yes, you got the OCDiabetic part right LOL
Comment by jrtpup on October 11, 2011 at 6:14pm
Very fancy Doug, a matching set ;) I guess I'm OCDiabetic enough, checking the dex so often, that I don't really want to have to take it out of something. I WILL find 'it' LOL
Comment by jrtpup on October 11, 2011 at 12:30pm
Wow OS! I have one from last time you posted. Love it, and it does stay on, but it's vertical. Doug, thanks, I really like the clear front though.

Hard to please huh? :)
Comment by onesaint on October 11, 2011 at 11:02am
jrt, still the best case I've found has been this one:

LG VX8500 Verizon case

The sides are elastic so the Dex sits snugly and the clip is very sturdy. Ive had my latest for about 6 months and it seems to be working fairly well still. I suppose the elastic in the edging will wear out eventually, but it's the best I've come across to date.
