Bill Quick replied to Annabella's discussion 'Extending Sensor Life' in the group Dexcom Users
"Agree there's no need to wait. When the warning pops up, I plan to stop it myself before it shuts down, preferably when I expect the values to be stable for the 2 hours when I'm flying blind. Two things happen when a sensor is dying -- (1)…"

"I'd suggest you write to the head of Regulatory Affairs at Tandem Diabetes Care. If you can call their toll-free number (1-877-801-6901), you can probably get the e-mail address for RA... Good luck!"

Bill Quick replied to metheniac's discussion 'Dexcom and Medicare' in the group Dexcom Users

Bill Quick replied to joey's discussion 'newbe' in the group Dexcom Users
"1) Be careful with the receiver; it's delicate and if dropped, is more likely than a cell phone to be damaged. And don't get it wet -- water voids the warranty. 2) Consider getting a "skin" or case -- go to Talleygear.com for…"

"Just spoke to Dexcom tech support: same battery warranty (6 months). I suggested they 1) include a statement that it's thinner and same warranty, and 2) that they watch out if the new units die at 6 1/2 months instead of the nearly-a-year that…"
