Dan replied to MarlboroNick's discussion 'What's the longest a single sensor has been used?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I don't think I've gotten one to last more than 16 days. Some of that is because the adhesive fails, even when I put some IV-3000 or similar on it."

Dan replied to KrabbyKelly's discussion 'Did your CDE train you, or did you train yourself?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I'd suggest trying it yourself first. I did it myself, it's not difficult."

Dan replied to NatalieHodge's discussion 'turnaround time for low?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I do what Clare does -- if after 15 minutes my blood sugar hasn't risen (according to fingersticks, not the Dex), I'll eat more carbs. But sometimes I'll also do what Jeff does and cover that second helpful of carbs with a half or…"

Dan replied to Benjamin McLaughlin's discussion 'Problems with ???' in the group Dexcom Users
"I don't worry too much about the ???s. Sometimes the next time I look at my Dexcom, I've got a reading. If I get a high frequency of ???s, it's usually an indication that time is running out on that sensor. (I try to use sensors for…"

Dan replied to jagolly's discussion 'Intense exercise raising glucose levels?' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I've had similar experiences playing softball, where my blood sugar goes up and not down like it does during other physical activity. (I don't wear my pump during the game, but my basal rate is so low it shouldn't matter.) Like Alisa,…"

Dan replied to Jennitar's discussion 'INFORMAL SURVEY: Is the Dexcom Seven Plus volume setting loud enough to wake you up?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Yes. I still tune it out sometimes when I'm sleeping, but I think that has more to do with being used to the tones than the volume. Perhaps an ability to choose from among several alarm tones would help."

Dan replied to Sophie's discussion 'Dexcom receiver/transmitter and metal dectector' in the group Dexcom Users
"I'm the same as kjrider -- I just put the receiver in the tray with my iPhone, keys, etc, and send it thru. Haven't even thought about the sensor, but it's never been picked up by a scanner -- and I think I've even been wanded…"

Dan replied to KevinS's discussion 'Dexcom and Water' in the group Dexcom Users
"I hope it keeps working. I got mine wet last year. It conked out immediately, then came back to life when it dried out. Trouble was, there must have still been water sloshing around inside, or the corrosion was slow to take effect, so after a couple…"
