UPDATE: I AM NOT PLANNING ON DOING THIS. I don't foresee a circumstance where I couldn't wait half an hour to get down to a lower number, it's just the concept intrigues me. I realize that for many…Continue

Pumps and Crock-Pots

Two things that people swear by that I don't have a desire to own or use. I got my A1c nailed down for now, and can see the benefits of a pump, but really don't like the idea of dragging it around…Continue

"Could a lot of ??? indicate transmitter battery dying? I have had the transmitter for 7 months, and in the last 3 weeks I have gotten a lot of ???, which I never did before. The status says battery is fine."

"I tried the gauze covering solution while bike riding this past weekend and am pleased to report that it worked well. I did not lose the signal to the G4 even momentarily. Thanks for the suggestion."

"This has been known about for around a year and reported by users as an issue :-) but as always unless you see the posts you would not know. Good to see Dexcom taking an interest in the reports now."

"I'm getting the ??? on my G4 also. I do not do any heavy workouts. I called and spoke with Tech Support they asked me a few questions I asked them a few as well. They told me if this keeps happening they will send a new sensor. They replaced…"

"Thanks for the solution (although I agree that it's not one that users should have to figure out). I'm new to Dexcom, having just started my 3rd sensor. I had identical sensor behavior that you describe while out on bike rides both days…"

LACA310 replied to Firehead's discussion 'Frequent G4 Sensor Failures on Slender Person' in the group Dexcom Users
"When I was leaner I had similar issues (and it hurt,too) on my stomach sites. They suggested leaning the inserter back/down a bit so it wouldn't slide in as deep."

Clare replied to LACA310's discussion 'G4 Transmitter - When did yours die?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Thigh is my favorite dex site, in fact I haven't put it anywhere else since finding the perfect spot. I figure while it is on for 3 weeks the other side has plenty of time to heal."

Terry replied to LACA310's discussion 'G4 Transmitter - When did yours die?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Clare - It's good to read about your great Dex performance. I am very happy with this system and look forward to better performance with the new transmitter. I usually get two weeks out of a sensor. I experimented with trying my current sensor…"

"Hi Glen, I wore it continuously until about 3 months ago and now use about one sensor a month lasting 2 weeks or so; however my understanding is that it transmits whether you are wearing it or not so not sure that would effect its longevity?"

Glen replied to LACA310's discussion 'G4 Transmitter - When did yours die?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Now that is sounding encouraging. How frequently do you have it on? Do you were it continuously or have breaks?"
