"Hi All; I just put my first Dexcom sensor on and it was a job. Getting the sensor snap in almost defeated me. Now we wait and see. Is there a software program that works on Mac? Dexcom doesn't seem to like Mac. Anyone else have this problem?"

Rene commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
