"I have never had mine break. I keep it in a Tallygear cover which completely covers it and I wear it on a Spibelt."

"The obvious caution is to keep it in a lint free pocket. May even want to put some tape over the opening & replace as needed. I have had 2 Dexes, both via insurance, and have not had a slot cover break (knock on wood). I do have a cover on Dex…"

Dexcom G4 keeps breaking

Has anyone else had problems with their Dexcom G4 CGM, where the plastic tab on the side where the USB is breaking? I have broken 3 of them. When the tab breaks, the cover no longer stays in place, which then cannot keep dust and contaminants out of the device.Before anyone says that I'm too rough on my meters, I am not. I keep it in my front pocket, don't drop it, and generally take very good care of it. When I spoke to technical support today, I asked the woman if she has seen many CGMs break…See More

Animas Vibe in U.S.?

I have been looking into getting an insulin pump. I am very active, mountain biking, hiking, etc., and the Vibe looks like it would be a good option. I'm already using a Dexcom G4, which makes the Vibe more appealing. I'm also interested in any suggestions/opinions about pumps. I go to a class in a week and a half to learn more about pumping.Any word on the status of this, and when it might be approved?See More
