Type1 for 30 Plus Years

For those who've had Type 1 diabetes for a long time. I don't really care how long. Just long.

"Hi Rene, sorry it took so long for me to reply. Yes the 530g is the one that shuts itself off. It is the reason I switched and got it. Ironically,I never use it for that feature. I will probably use it again once I get the alarms dialed in a little…"

"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?"

"I think you are asking about charging the battery in the transmitter. If that's your question, no. It isn't rechargeable. It lasts anywhere from the 6 months according to Dexcom to about 18 months for me. The receiver of course, is plugged…"

"Thank you. I will go to Dexcom users I'm just more comfortable here. Is it necessary to charge the battery pack after a week in order to make it last longer? I hope that is understandable."

Richard157 commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"The Dexcom sensors typically last two weeks, so they can be restarted when prompted by the CGM and no sensor change is necessary. Some users restart a second time and go even longer than two weeks. When accuracy is lost, it is time to change…"

"the sensor will say...change sensor soon around day 7. At that time you can stop sensor and start it gain and get a few more days out of it. Most people get another full week, but I only get a few days. When the readings get off, I change it. No…"

Rene commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"Wait Lisa I thought the sensor lasted 7 or 8 days what is this about restart? My fingers would so love only 4 times a day.I do thank you all for your help with this."

lisa c commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"I used to test 15 plus times a day. The dex has me testing 4 times now as I totally trust it most days. Only after 7 days and restart do I test more often as I find it has a shelf life . You will find what works for you."

Rene commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"Sounds like something I would do. when I started there aaas no such thing as strips I am afraid I'm one of those people, control freak. Well I'll hope for my ability to trust and relax."

artwoman commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"I test that much because I always had - before CGM. I tested about 8-10x before I was clued into the fact that having type 1 meant my insurance would cover my test strips. I just paid a ton of money. Then a colleague with type 1 mentioned that her…"

Rene commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"Hi art woman sorry I've been so long my computer is about to drive me up a wall, I hope I won't have to test that much. Do you do it because you don't trust your sensor reading? I hope not since I will moving to Dex because I…"

artwoman commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"Rene, I've bee3n CGM'ing with Dexcom for about 7 years now. I still test between 10-15x a day - mainly when I see trend changes, or numbers that I question. Together with my testing, my micro-dosing of the pump, and my Dexcom4 I stay in…"

Rene commented on Robert Yancey's group 'Type1 for 30 Plus Years'
"Lisa I can't wait to get it. Right now I check 9 times a day or more and even though I wear a MM CGM I don't trust so I ignore. My husband likes me to wear it so that maybe he'll hear it during the night when my sugar drops but since…"

"Rena, you should love the dexcom. short learning curve. the MM was so stressful and ended up needing to test more than ever. keep us posted on your progreaa,"
