Biomuse replied to Alyssa's discussion 'Dexcom share?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I'm in the same boat. I'm not upgrading until it's a normal covered upgrade in another 6 months. If you're not buying a watch anyway, then I don't see much point. You have to dig either your iPhone or your Dex receiver out…"
Biomuse replied to Terry's discussion 'CGM wrist watch BG display - Apple Watch' in the group Dexcom Users
"Melissa, to your knowledge are there plans to coordinate with Dexcom to get the Pebble working with their iPhone app? If not, why not? I have to be honest and say I find extremely frustrating - even angering - Dexcom's apparent decision to…"

Biomuse replied to Terry's discussion 'CGM wrist watch BG display - Apple Watch' in the group Dexcom Users
"Let me put it this way: if there were a way for me to have my cgm data projected onto my retina so that I could see it at all times, I'd do that. I think it makes that much of a difference."

Biomuse replied to Linny's discussion 'When to admit defeat?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Agreed: the first day can be great IF your sugar during calibration hours was steady and close to normal range, but more often it will be a bit off before a couple of additional calibrations have gone by. Try to follow the general rules for Dex…"

Biomuse replied to Zardoz's discussion 'Anyone using Dexcom's new Portrait-on-the-Web site to upload CGM data?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Looked and worked great for me, has what I use most on Studio anyway. Had to hit return to allow driver kexts to load before upload but that's trivial. I think the perspective one should have on this is that it is very obviously a first run,…"

Biomuse replied to Corinna's discussion 'Scientists Coax Human Embryonic Stem Cells Into Making Insulin'
"I saw Melton talk about this for years at conferences. Like most induced differentiation problems it's essentially combinatorial chemistry as applied to cell signaling - a truly staggering number of 96-well titer plates went to incinerators to…"

Biomuse replied to Joern's discussion 'Cleaning a dead sensor and re-insert it' in the group Dexcom Users
"OK. Question: will simply shutting down the sensor and recalibrating in place (during a good, level BG period for calibration, which seems to be more important than anything) achieve the same result?"
Sep 13, 2014
Biomuse replied to Joern's discussion 'Cleaning a dead sensor and re-insert it' in the group Dexcom Users
"That sensor is *tiny* and the "hole," assuming it isn't entirely clotted over by the time this process is completed, will be the same, inflamed/scarring-activated location that you removed it from. So how would that help, exactly?…"

Biomuse replied to Linny's discussion 'First Big "ol Hematoma!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Linny, it sounds to me as though you sure have used this insertion area before - and like it could use a break. Steer clear of recent sites and rotate, rotate your sites. Have you tried the backs of your arms? I know it's not "officially…"

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…"
