"Weight must have something to do with it. I used to get 2-3 weeks easy. Then all of a sudden even 7 days was a struggle, with ??? by day 5 or 6. I thought my transmitter battery must be dying, but tech support said no. I realized that I had gained…"

"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 have used expired sensors often, since I get a 90 day supply, but it lasts me six to 9 months. I am sure that they put an expiration date that insures the sensors are good a few months after also. The enzyme on the sensor will eventually lose…"

"These receivers fully charged last so many days, that I would not worry about shutting them down. Just stop sensor. I have very good insurance that covers my sensors fully, but I use them at least for two weeks. First reason is convenience. I…"

Dexcom Studio issue

Hi,I just installed Dexcom Studio. I received my G4 last night.Studio imported data from my previous 3 7+ patients (each new receiver insisted on creating a new patient).Is there anyway to combine these data? So all the 3 years of data will be attached to the current data?See More

Isaac replied to LACA310's discussion 'G4 Transmitter - When did yours die?' in the group Dexcom Users
"My G4 will arrive tomorrow. I have used 7 plus for two years. Besides the transmitter life, is there anything else I should know? Any other major difference?"

Isaac replied to BWashington's discussion 'How do you know when it's time to change the sensor?' in the group Dexcom Users
"One more thing. When I order the sensors, I insist that they have six months expiration date. They are allowed to ship you up to 90 day expiration. Since they ship me 90 day supply, and it lasts me 180 days, it makes a difference."

Isaac replied to BWashington's discussion 'How do you know when it's time to change the sensor?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Your obvious answer, adhesive peeling off, is not an answer at all. There are many ways to reinforce the adhesive, or tape over it. For me, I either get ??? that does not go away, or the numbers start getting so obviously wrong. Today is my day 10,…"

Isaac replied to artwoman's discussion 'WOW I'm Impressed!' in the group Dexcom Users
"Great testimony on the accuracy. But is it true that the sensor battery only lasts six months? My 7+ is 18 months old and still running."
