Biomuse replied to LovetoHike's discussion 'G4 arriving tomorrow! :)' in the group Dexcom Users
"I find that on some first days with a sensor, if: A) The values are way off from finger stick, AND B) you're level (flat arrow on the Dex), AND C) it's been at least ~1hr since you last entered a fingerstick value into the Dex, then…"

Biomuse replied to LovetoHike's discussion 'G4 arriving tomorrow! :)' in the group Dexcom Users
"My point wasn't that you shouldn't be doing what you're doing. It works for you, so obviously you should be doing it. I just wanted to point out that it probably isn't wise to start out like that, that Dexcom itself doesn't…"

Biomuse replied to LovetoHike's discussion 'G4 arriving tomorrow! :)' in the group Dexcom Users
"I'm as big a booster of Dexcom as anybody (I think the G4 is only slightly less important than, say, insulin for modern diabetes management), but even I would never recommend that as a blanket practice. Just like your insulin pump insertion…"

Biomuse replied to cbaer's discussion 'New to Dexcom G4 and travel' in the group Dexcom Users
"If you go through with the receiver (which isn't attached to your body), I think you'll get stopped (at least, I'd HOPE you'd get stopped, but I've never tried it so I don't know for certain).Truthfully, you're…"

Biomuse replied to DavidTTX's discussion 'The challenges of using the Dexcom software' in the group Dexcom Users
"I'm running Dexcom Studio under Windows XP from Boot Camp on my Mac Pro (4,1). No problems here. Which if you think about it, is kind of amazing. I doubt Studio will ever run under OSX. I have no doubt whatsoever that a mobile version of it…"

Biomuse commented on Emily Coles's event 'Live Interview with Drs. Edward Damiano and Steven Russell, creators of the Bionic Pancreas'
"P.S. The closed-loop-assist approach, by the way, takes some pressure off of the reliability of cgm data, getting us that much closer to a FDA-approvable product. Just sayin'."

Biomuse commented on Emily Coles's event 'Live Interview with Drs. Edward Damiano and Steven Russell, creators of the Bionic Pancreas'
"To clarify/sharpen my previous question: Given the kinetics of insulin dosing as it stands and the associated issues, the ideal system will be closed-loop-assisted, as opposed to closed-loop-only. Although the "guardrails" system…"

Biomuse commented on Emily Coles's event 'Live Interview with Drs. Edward Damiano and Steven Russell, creators of the Bionic Pancreas'
"Interested to know whether this system is smart enough to land on its feet in the presence of user input at the pump, which would allow predictive dosing and very likely improve the average bg outcome."

Biomuse replied to Janice's discussion 'Dexcom G4 and Tylenol/ Aspirin?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I think it comes down to a cost/benefit issue. Is there some reason Advil or other NSAID pain relievers wouldn't be ok to try? I find they work great for me, and there's no issue of interference with the G4 with them. Nothing lost plus a…"

Biomuse replied to Janice's discussion 'Dexcom G4 and Tylenol/ Aspirin?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Aspirin 81mg does not affect the Dex; I take one daily as well. Pain relief: as Michael pointed out, Tylenol And any other acetaminophen-based pain relievers are no longer available to you while you're on the Dex. For pain relief try something…"

Biomuse replied to Scott A's discussion 'Does inputing strip data more often, help calibration?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I tend to cluster-calibrate after insertion - the first day or so I'll calibrate at every fingerstick (except double arrows). I find that after day two, If I enter a value whenever the Dex says I'm level and I happen to check, plus the two…"
