Scott Wilkins replied to Grace's discussion 'Out of Range Overnight' in the group Dexcom Users
"I've seen my Dexcom work from 1 or 2 rooms away for long periods of time. But occasionally it does go away for no reason at close distances, usually only for a reading or two but not for hours. Radio signals are funny things though. Especially…"

Scott Wilkins replied to James Type 1 diabetic's discussion 'Dexcom G4 accuracy ,hypo and rebound.' in the group Dexcom Users
"This level of control needs advice from a doctor. Too many folks have too varying results from simple little changes, so you may get bad advice unintentionally."

Scott Wilkins replied to Anthony's discussion 'FDA Approves Dexcom Software with Artificial Pancreas Algorithm' in the group Dexcom Users
"You might look at a standard deviation rather than a percentage off. That may be more representative of the errors."

Scott Wilkins replied to Linny's discussion 'DEXCOM and A1C' in the group Dexcom Users
"The G4 allowed me to go under 7 finally! I've been a solid 8 for a long time, couldn't go lower. It was all due to me being afraid of having lows. Scared to death of having them, so I ran higher than I would like just to keep from going…"

Scott Wilkins replied to joey's discussion 'help I need a few spare sensor sites' in the group Dexcom Users
"Keep in mind many folks here are getting 2 or more weeks out of a sensor... You just reset the receiver as if you put in a new sensor but you don't actually change it. I personally get 3 to 4 weeks out of one. But, YMMV of course. Professionals…"

Scott Wilkins replied to JessK's discussion 'What insurance is most OmniPod friendly?' in the group OmniPod Users
"FreeStyle has a program where you'd only pay $25/month no matter what your insurance is, as long as you have insurance. Contact them to get on this plan."
Dec 5
Scott Wilkins replied to laura's discussion 'whats going on?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Keep in mind the Dexcom does not give an instant BG reading. It's more of a trend or average of BG over the last 20 minutes. So what you can see by entering the BG test you did was that over the past 20 minutes, and that you BG average was 129,…"

Scott Wilkins replied to KCCO's discussion 'Omnipod & porcine insulin' in the group OmniPod Users
"There is one scenario that fits this question. If you are insulin resistant, then you might want to use the "U500" version of insulin. This version is only available in a Porcine derived solution. And anti-bodies from past use may no…"

Scott Wilkins replied to MissyMoo's discussion 'Where are you getting Freestyle test strips?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Go ahead and get the old ones, then like Helmut suggested call Abbott. They'll replace them with good ones."

Scott Wilkins replied to James Type 1 diabetic's discussion 'DEXCOM enzyme , and metals? leak in body?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Have you contacted Dexcom with this question? They are extremely helpful and will probably give you all the info you need, including anything you should be worried about. If, there is anything to worry about..."

Scott Wilkins replied to Dave's discussion 'Pod failures, and changed pattern of errors' in the group OmniPod Users
"I only had a couple occlusion on the older pods. Haven't had one on the new pods. Check with Insulet though, they might replace the bad pods for you."

Scott Wilkins replied to SherryAnn's discussion 'Problems with Lancets?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I'm on and Aspirin regiment. Zero problems drawing blood, and sometimes get to test even when I wasn't expecting too... :) 43 years Type 1."
Nov 18
Scott Wilkins replied to Dave's discussion 'Do you plan to change a pod at work?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I don't get a full 3 days out of a pod due to insulin resistance. So I change my pod whenever it runs out, where ever I may be. I always carry an extra pod and insulin with me. So I've changed out in a variety of locations. I do like the…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Anthony's discussion 'FDA Approves Dexcom Software with Artificial Pancreas Algorithm' in the group Dexcom Users
"Link to the software download?"
Nov 6
Scott Wilkins replied to SherryAnn's discussion 'Sticking Needle' in the group OmniPod Users
"I started the newer pods last week, the ones with the new syringe. So far they seem to be quite a bit better on canula insertion. I also like the new syringe, as I find it easier to get less bubbles, and much less wasteful on insulin."
Nov 5
Scott Wilkins replied to Kate's discussion 'New syringe design' in the group OmniPod Users
"Just FYI, I started a new shipment of pods and now have the new syringe. I find it MUCH better than the old syringe. I can actually get less bubbles by pulling just a couple units in and pushing back into the vial a few times right at first (after…"
