Patricia replied to Djinn's discussion 'Dexcom and PET scan' in the group Dexcom Users
"Dexcom rep told me that as long as there is no magnet in the PET scanner it will be fine to leave the sensor in place. The sensor will show up as being present if it's scanned, but will cause no harm if there is no magnet in the scanner. She…"

"MRI is different as it generates a strong magnetic field that could send the sensor flying like a bullet. It would be reasonable to remove it. PET/CT has no such issues."

"They made me take mine off my arm for a full body MRI (and I had just started it -- dang!). Don't know about a PET, but they may say the same for a CT. /\/\"

Dexcom and PET scan

Hi guys,Anyone have experience having a PET/CT scan while wearing a Dexcom sensor? It's in my upper arm and my cancer is in my abdomen, so I figure it's not going to be an area they need to monitor. I'm asking here as I know both Dexcom and the hospital will just tell me to take it out...See More

Yay Humalog! After three terrible months of Apidra

I spent many years on Humalog and never had an A1C higher than 7; usually it was 6.2 or 6.3, and sometimes dropped down into the magic 5 realm. But the downside - which really became clear when I started using a Dexcom six months ago - was many many nighttime lows. So I did some research and discovered that Apidra has a shorter "tail" - i.e. stops acting earlier after a shot - so I asked my endo to put me on it. Well! Just got my A1C results: 7.5! It was 6.3 three months ago. Yikes. No more…See More

Djinn replied to earthling's discussion 'So much blood - What do you use to clean up after you prick your finger?'
"Ha. I lick. This is a vast improvement on my youth when, as a black-clad teenager, I wiped my fingertip on my socks. It was the 80s - we had big socks."
