ChrisG replied to Scott A's discussion 'Are the Dexcom sensors lasting as long these days?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have had similar experiences. For a long time, all lots I had used seemed to consistently last 2+ weeks, but every now and then I would get a box that had 1 or 2 that barely went 2 weeks. I'm guessing here, but most likely the manufacturing…"

ChrisG replied to Aussie's discussion 'Blacking out' in the group Dexcom Users
"Aussie, A lot will depend on how your body handles it. After about 24 years with Type 1, I lost my symptoms of lows and would black out a lot - very scary because you snap out of it in different places, often with juice and food in front of you,…"

ChrisG replied to Aussie's discussion 'Traveling' in the group Dexcom Users
"I travel constantly, and have been through airports all over the US as well as some in Europe, doing the same thing: I take my belt off, and the Dex, and put that through the X-ray machine with all my other stuff. I go through the scanner with my…"

ChrisG replied to Benjamin McLaughlin's discussion 'G4 Got Rained On' in the group Dexcom Users
"Wow, that is a great story... So the Tallygear can't be fastened to anything to prevent that? Isn't it a belt? Just curious. For a reason, in that I have a solution to that issue (would also help with water resistance. Not waterproofing…"

ChrisG replied to E. Louise's discussion 'TIghtening control with a G4' in the group Dexcom Users
"From a long term perspective, there are some drawbacks in targeting an A1c in that range. I am in my 26th year as a type 1. I always had A1c in the low to mid 6's. About 20 years into it, I lost the symptoms of low blood sugar. I would be…"

ChrisG replied to NatalieHodge's discussion 'Dreaded ???' in the group Dexcom Users
"Hi Natalie, So the sensor went in that time with no pain at all, but what happened was before the seven days were up, underneath the sensor became sore and very itchy. After about the 5 day mark I removed it - the hole where the actual sensor wire…"

ChrisG replied to MikeO's discussion 'CGM and fingerstick use' in the group Dexcom Users
"Less fingersticks here, although I will be the first to admit it is a slightly bad habit to get into. When I had the Freestyle Navigator, that thing was so accurate after the first day that I got into a very bad habit of almost never doing…"

ChrisG replied to NatalieHodge's discussion 'Dreaded ???' in the group Dexcom Users
"In my experience the ??? is almost always a sensor issue - sometimes they are bad out of the box, sometimes things happen to them as it seems in this case. Be careful of sensor pain (especially if the Dex is still working OK) - I got a staph…"

ChrisG replied to LukesMom's discussion 'Download G4 data on Mac using VMware' in the group Dexcom Users
"Lukes Mom - I just went through this EXACT thing a few days ago. Luca is right, but the problem is that the Dexcom G4 driver is a special one that also creates a virtual COM port on the computer that you install the Studio software on. I finally…"
