Franco replied to John H's discussion 'Freestyle navigator Let's complain' in the group Freestyle Navigator Users
"Hi Secret Squirrel, I think the only way to get a Navigator is to get one out of Europe. I looked into getting one through an acquaintance who lived in the UK but the cost was prohibitive for me. I also have a neighbor who is an MD and was traveling…"

Franco replied to Franco's discussion 'How could one buy a Navigator CGM from Europe?' in the group Continuous Glucose Monitor Users
"I just recently upgraded to the G4 Dex and it now does compare favorably to the Nav. I hated the Dex 7plus compared to the Nav but now I'm satisfied with the G4 except I could get longer sensor life with the Nav."

"All the countries except USA France and Israel use mmol/l We use mg/dl. Of course, you and I could live with converting the numbers. I do not know why your Dr thinks Nave will be back, since the Nav1.5 was never released here, and it was FDA…"

"Thanks for sharing. My endo estimated 2-3 years for it to be available in the US. Of course, estimating anything regarding the FDA is probably futile. However, he did indicate that Abbot was trying. He also said it was available in Germany."

"Only France and Israel use our system of measurement. And the transmitter battery pins and set pin still suck!!! The new NAV 2 was recently approved in the UC. it will not have replaceable batteries in either the handset, or the transmitter, from…"

"I have had so many issues with the alarms. I was used to freestyle navigator that beep on a regular basis. The alarms were so good and annoying. Since I have been using this Dexcom machine it has been terrible. They are fixing some of the problems…"

Franco replied to Franco's discussion 'Alarm/Alert issues' in the group Dexcom Users
"Daniel W, Is your Dex a 7plus model? My 7plus never will beep continually even when I ignore or sleep through the 3 feeble vibrates. It will do 3 feebles about every 5 minutes but I don't wake up with that either. I've tested this and…"

Daniel W replied to Franco's discussion 'Alarm/Alert issues' in the group Dexcom Users
"One thing I've noticed with my Dexcom is that when I have it currently on Vibrate/Beep... Sugar = <80 - First reading - Vibrate, 5 min later - Beeps. Continual beeps 'til I hit the button. If I hit OK or clear (I've never noticed a…"

Frank Olsen replied to Franco's discussion 'Alarm/Alert issues' in the group Dexcom Users
"I never use that the "C" button except to cancel some entry I've made. I always use the OK button whenever it alarms but I don't get the same results that you experience. Also, I have a terrible time hearing my vibrate/beep. If…"

AlexJ replied to Franco's discussion 'Alarm/Alert issues' in the group Dexcom Users
"Here's what may be happening, though I am not sure. When you look at your receiver, if you push the clear button, it will clear the alarm. If you push the ok button, it will not clear the alarm. I find that if my receiver alarms, and I push the…"

Wiffy replied to Franco's discussion 'Alarm/Alert issues' in the group Dexcom Users
"I've had the same problems Franco but figured it was maybe a limitation of the device? I have no explanation, always wondered why half the time my alert would go off at 80, and at other times at 50, aptly put Franco! I haven't been wearing…"

Franco replied to AustinMom's discussion 'Draw insulin from tubing?'
"A few times I got into situations where I was out of insulin except for the remainder in the tubing so I removed the cartridge from the tubing and pulled in air into the cartridge and re installed. Back in the pump the air in the cartridge pushed…"

Franco replied to Emily Coles's discussion 'TANDEM DIABETES CARE ANNOUNCES FDA CLEARANCE OF THE T:SLIM™ INSULIN DELIVERY SYSTEM'
"I saw it and played with it at the ADA Expo in Seattle in April. There's a lot I liked but the deal killer for me is the need to recharge, it just won't work for me. Just like the Dexcom which, when I'm often away from electricity on…"
