Dondi replied to Linny's discussion 'First sensor failure' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have used it almost exclusively on my inner thigh. I wear an Omnipod insulin pump and use that on my stomach. One thing is that I find using it on fatty tissue works best. If I get too close to a muscle it doesn't work and is painful for…"

Dondi replied to MarlboroNick's discussion 'What's the longest a single sensor has been used?' in the group Dexcom Users
"About 21 day (3 Weeks) is the longest I have worn one. Even then I had to put band-aids on the sides to hold it on. I was traveling and couldn't change it. I use Skin Tac and that does pretty good but after a couple weeks the sensor gets loose…"

"It is a wonderful thing. I am fearful though that insurance companies will deem it as an experimental treatment for the foreseeable future. They are slow to adapt things even though we need them and they would improve our life. It usually comes down…"

Dondi replied to Mary's discussion 'old transmitter and receiver disposal?' in the group Dexcom Users
"It is a shame that they (Dexcom) do nothing to help. I am sure there are many 3rd world places where these would be a Godsend. Especially since they can be altered and recharged and continue to do service. Our FDA would not approve that but the…"

Dondi replied to Gayle Kodimer Mckenna's discussion 'OUCH!!!! Very painful insertion just now' in the group Dexcom Users
"Been there, it's rough. If the insertion were automated like on the Omnipod I think it would be less painful. When you start to insert and there is pain you can't back off and you don't want to continue I think it makes it worse."

Dondi replied to markeeezy's discussion 'Blood on Sensor Insertion' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have had it happen a few times. Once when I took it off it actually was spurting. My Dr. said that I must have hit a vein that was close to the surface. I just treated it with Neo-Sporen and a bandaid it healed quickly. The company never seems to…"

Dondi replied to dishers's discussion 'Chasing sugars what works for you?' in the group Dexcom Users
"For me it tells me how my body reacts to different foods. Sometimes it takes 8 hours for a food to reach the highest BG number. At least it seems to. Other times it is like 15 minutes. Keeping track of what you eat (Like a Food Diary) can be…"

"That's interesting as I have used cold insulin and not had any pod failures as a result of that. I don't use vials however, I use pens. If the one in my glucometer case is empty, I just pull another out of the fridge and use it immediately."

Kenneth replied to Dondi's discussion 'Omnipod (New Version) Failures' in the group OmniPod Users
"Cold insulin will cause failures. Our Daughter has been on the Pods for 3 years. Keep the bottle your using at room temp. We have been doing that for two years and much better and less failures. We have used Humalog with no problems and now the…"
