All this insulin pump is new to me. I was diagnosed with T1 about two weeks ago. ( after 3 years if being a T2). I guess my body stopped producing insulin. I do have to admit that I wasn't taking…Continue
Hey everyone!!! Just wanting to share something with all of you.Well I've been a diabetic for almost two years now. (I think) When I was first diagnosed I was depressed and didn't know much about…Continue
Hey everyone!!!Wow!! I've just realized that I've been a diabetic for a whole year now. I still remember the day they diagnosed me with diabetes. To be honest I didn't know much about it. I started…Continue
"i ride...indoors now, but with temps in the 40's this weekend i went outside and had no problems. can't figure why exercise would make you lose signal. do you carry it in your hand or keep it in a pocket...is it getting jostled? i ski with…"
"Maybe try a case? I was just thinking that immediately after getting my G4 I got a case for it that's fabric. Maybe that's why I've never lost signal during runs, walks, biking, etc. My case is girly, but I'll post it here in…"
Did you solve your problem!? I´m having the same problem; every time i start running, i loose my signal.
Usually i run with a synthetic shirt, do you know if this have something to do with it!?
"I workout in a gym twice a week. No problems here with G4. My trainer keeps the receiver on his clipboard and monitors closely. I have frequent hypos if CHO ingestion is not well planned and managed."
"I am waiting my g4 this week, but with my dexcom 7, I actually use an armband slip that is made for my phone/ipod. Might be how/where you are carying it? I know the g4 is supposed to have an expanded distance, but sometimes I would lose signal when…"
"It's not just you. Depending on the level of activity during karate I will loose it for a reading or two. Example, other day we did 100 jumping jacks, followed by burpees, sit ups and push ups. For that entire period I had no readings. As soon…"
"I wear mine when I'm white water kayaking, put the receiver in a small mobile phone dry case in my dry suit chest pocket and turn up the alarms. It works fine for me, I never loose signal. My activity can last from 2 to 6 hrs."
"I do long and very bumpy (VERY) mountain bike excursions with my G4 on and don't lose connectivity.
Every once in a while I lost connection with my 7+ while on rides, but sometimes I'd lose connection just sitting at my desk as well.
"I run with mine every day without losing signal. It's possible that your lost signal during your run was an anomaly? Did your transmitter come off from perspiration? Did you get the signal back? If you lost signal for just a short time and…"
"I exercise all the time with it, but I don't run. I walk, play tennis (which I suppose you need to run every once in a while) and I ride a stationary bicycle. I keep the receiver in the case that came with it when I exercise. And while the vast…"
