Started this discussion. Last reply by NatalieHodge Nov 8, 2013. 4 Replies

I've been using my current G4 continuously for about a year, but have recently noticed a few more ??? messages and periods with no data. Any guesses as to how much longer I can expect the transmitter…Continue

I just started up a new G4. Seemed easy going from 7+ so far, but I haven't even entered 1st calibration values yet. Has anyone experienced any problems yet with this new cgm? Software took much…Continue

Dexcom transmitter too expensive!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joe Apr 16. 3 Replies

Just checked the price on a new transmitter for Dexcom and it is $650.00! So I was wondering, has anyone ever tried to charge the transmitter battery on one of those charging pads? If so, does it…Continue

Bob replied to Joan's discussion 'Will be switching from Lantus to Levemir and need advice, suggestions.' in the group Levemir users
"Here are a couple of links to web pages comparing the action of most commonly used forms of insulin. Not too much difference between Lantus and Levemir according to these sources. That said, I (and others) have found that the Levemir activity does…"

Bob replied to Joan's discussion 'Will be switching from Lantus to Levemir and need advice, suggestions.' in the group Levemir users
"Sorry about missing the mdi & novolog bit at the beginning. I need to slow down and digest an entire message. Now, of course, I'm even more puzzled why your md is advising the big increase."

Bob replied to Joan's discussion 'Will be switching from Lantus to Levemir and need advice, suggestions.' in the group Levemir users
"I agree with David on this. You will need to be the one to learn your own insulin requirements. How are your A1Cs? If your blood sugars are almost consistently in the 85-125 range, then you will likely experience more frequent lows by doubling the…"

Bob replied to Tough Type 1's discussion 'CGM and Insulin Pump or Just CGM and Shots Ideas?'
"I'd seriously consider just starting with the cgm. Plenty of people (myself included, thankfully) maintain normal A1Cs with MDI. With such evenly absorbed insulins as Lantus and Levemir, you only need to carry around a single vial or pen (fast…"

I've been using my current G4 continuously for about a year, but have recently noticed a few more ??? messages and periods with no data. Any guesses as to how much longer I can expect the transmitter to keep going? Thanks! BobSee More

Bob replied to bikerchick's discussion 'Dexcom for a super active child????'
"I think that a CGM (in my case Dexcom) is the most valuable diabetes management tool currently available. This would be especially true for a child who is active as the CGM will monitor his/her glucose throughout those activities and alert the…"

Bob replied to SPRITE'S MOM's discussion 'Is there a software program to help with the stacking issue, tracking IOB? Reminders?' in the group Needle Diabetics
"M: Perhaps you already received your answer to, "what is stacking insulin?" In case you have not, it just means that you are taking one or more additional boluses of insulin while you still have some insulin yet to enter your bloodstream…"
