Hello, all. I've derived much comfort here over the past year since I've been diagnosed (T1 can be lonely in a small town) but have never had reason to pipe up. All my questions have been answered in…Continue

"I have the same problem, and can vouch for Hypafix to tape stuff down. Also, Kerri @ Six Until Me (diabetes blog) has gotten great relief from Johnson & Johnson Tough Pads when nothing else worked. She inserts the sensor straight through the…"

Denver replied to markeeezy's discussion 'Blood on Sensor Insertion' in the group Dexcom Users
"I've had bleeding at sensor sites too, but so far the blood has never affected a reading. Incidentally, in my experience, Dexcom will replace a sensor that's been in for less than seven days, whatever the reason. No need to worry about…"

Denver replied to Gayle Kodimer Mckenna's discussion 'OUCH!!!! Very painful insertion just now' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have only had D for two years, and have also told no one at work. My CDE put my first sensor in for me (told you I'm a wimp). She put it 3"-4" below my waistline on my backside. You never see it under shirts."

Denver replied to Gayle Kodimer Mckenna's discussion 'OUCH!!!! Very painful insertion just now' in the group Dexcom Users
"OUCH is right! I can imagine how much it would hurt if I tried inserting it on my stomach, which is really sensitive real estate. May I suggest trying it on your flank or outer thigh? I never have had a problem there, and I am a total wimp."

Denver replied to Aussie's discussion 'Fatty Foods, Insulin and going High' in the group Dexcom Users
"When I eat fatty foods, I go high 6-8 hours after my meal. It might be worth checking 6 and 8 hours out, and bolusing at one of those times (I'd try 6 hours first). Hope this helps!"

Denver replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'Anyone not able to get their sensor to last more than 7-10 days?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I just got 3 weeks out of one of mine. I'm allergic to the Dex adhesive, and use an adhesive by Hollinger over it (being careful to keep away from where the sensor goes) with no problems."

Denver replied to Aussie's discussion 'G4 and Showering' in the group Dexcom Users
"I dab a Skin Prep wipe on the bottom of the sensor, making sure I don't go near the area where the sensor inserts. Then I cover the Dex tape with Hypafix. (I do not cover the sensor.) I replace the Hypafix every week. I'm on week 3 of my…"

Denver replied to Aussie's discussion 'G4 and Showering' in the group Dexcom Users
"I wear mine on the outside of my upper thigh, usually a little closer to the back of my thigh than the front but not where I'm likely to sit on it. I never feel it, ever. I've tried my flanks, aka bum, but the tricky part is placing it…"

Denver replied to Aussie's discussion 'G4 and Showering' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have had the sensor freak out after a shower, as well. I too noticed a few drops of water underneath the transmitter when I removed it. Interestingly, this happened during the one week where I wasn't using Hypafix tape, which I've…"

Denver replied to Mike F's discussion 'About 1 in 5 of my sensors don't function properly during the first week, is this typical?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Dexcom is very good about replacing bum sensors, which leads me to believe that despite the fact that they are definitely more accurate than the Seven Plus, problems are still common. My failure rate has averaged about 1 out of every 6 or 7…"

Denver replied to artwoman's discussion 'Looks like I found a great Dexcom4 case' in the group Dexcom Users
"I look forward to the report as well. I've been holding off because I understand you can't hear the alarm (or feel the vibration, or both) through the neoprene, which was a deslbreaker for me. So hope I'm wrong for both our sakes."
