Yes, that is a bumpy rollercoaster, except for the one elevator up, you still drew in the lines. The Dex looses track of Nate too if he goes up like that quick. Where's your pink skin? Is that a cell phone case? Nate uses Dex's zipper pouch. Hey, I'd love to get your chestnut dressing recipe. Trader Joe's has peeled and cooked chestnuts, thought that sounded good. :)
Hmmm this is the only one I can find, and it's 14.95. Still worth it, maybe more searching would yield a lower price? It's the LG VX8550 Chocolate Verizon Original Pouch with Belt Clip and Wristlet
Two CGMs Jaybyrd? Or two different days?
Sensor dies early
This sensor was only one week old yesterday. I went to bed two nights ago with a smooth well flowing line and woke up to this bumpy lumpy line. Real BG does not move this way. It's a much smoother action. There's several breaks, or discontinuities, that are classic markers of a failing sensor. You can also see where I've calibrated (red stars) and the calibration number is well off the line.
I was hoping this situation would correct itself but I've decided to pull the sensor today. My overnight line looks a lot like this mess!
When to pull the plug!
Terry you beat me too it, I was just about to upload this when I saw your post. Will still share it anyway as the circumstances were a bit different.
Had my sensor die after only 20 days - which is a week short for my norm. Placed a new one and it was crap from the get go. Pinging me low overnight repeatedly when I was anything but. Tried to give it a day or two as I do not listen to dexter on the first two days without a double check but this just kept getting worse. All the ups and downs had no relation to my BG readings and then it finally kept doing the low!! thing and would not calibrate. First time for me! Have not pulled a sensor on day 2 before this. New sensor from the same box, placed in the same general area has been reasonably accurate, first week is always a bit variable for me.
Can't call dexcom for a new sensor since that box expired 2 weeks ago. Have 3 more left from that lot so will be interesting to see how they run. Hate to waste them even if I'm not out of pocket for them.
When the line is lumpy, it makes me suspicious of the data. Your line looks familiar.
