Jeff replied to laura's discussion 'whats going on?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have seen the same thing but after a short time, its' accuracy improves to where it was. But not always! My big gripe is how much it seems to drift overnight. I think there is some sort of magic in the device."

Jeff replied to Adrien's discussion 'Restarting the dexcom sensor - what you should know' in the group Dexcom Users
"Good luck with that! Their service folks took a long time to replace the receiver claiming my electronic noise in my home was causing the problem or that it was a bad sensor. After two sensors, I finally got a new receiver and although it did have…"

Jeff replied to Jake's discussion 'What were the leading reasons you decided to go with the Snap pump?' in the group Snap Insulin Pump Users
"Being an idiot, I jumped into the pool on vacation and realized about a minute later that I still had my SNAP on. Using a four letter word, I jumped out and the pump indeed, was dead. It turned out that the pump body was dead but the controller was…"

Jeff replied to Adrien's discussion 'Restarting the dexcom sensor - what you should know' in the group Dexcom Users
"I haven't seen the ??? when this happens although the ??? occasionally appears separately. I find it hard to believe that the "connection" would break while it is resting happily under my pillow while I sleep. But that could be true…"

Jeff replied to Adrien's discussion 'Restarting the dexcom sensor - what you should know' in the group Dexcom Users
"Very nice. I have used the same sensor more than once but my problem is the sensitivity to the adhesive. Some people just can't take the itching after a week! At one point I was finding the Dex was way off calibration and the more I entered new…"
