Scott Wilkins replied to Cocheze's discussion 'Arms and Thighs' in the group OmniPod Users
"I usually experience the opposite, better absorption in my arms than my stomach. My Doctor said it was due to more blood flow in my arms. It could also be due to scare tissue in this area that you are having problems. I was almost 100% MDI in my…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Joern's discussion 'How to get extra lifetime from a sensor' in the group Dexcom Users
"It's all about making sure the contact between the sensor and the transmitter is good. After a while it gets dirty and loose. So cleaning and reconnecting can do wonders."
Sunday
Scott Wilkins replied to dishers's discussion '? About ???' in the group Dexcom Users
"It's most likely the transmitter is not connecting well to the sensor. Try removing the transmitter and cleaning the two small silver connectors with first a pencil eraser, then with a dry cloth. Put it back and see if that makes any difference."
Saturday
Scott Wilkins replied to dishers's discussion 'Chasing sugars what works for you?' in the group Dexcom Users
"For me it wasn't about chasing sugars, but rather understanding them in order to find a balance of lifestyle on a day-to-day basis. I'll go ahead and say it: A good diabetic is a boring diabetic. There, now that's out in the open we…"

Scott Wilkins replied to markeeezy's discussion 'Blood on Sensor Insertion' in the group Dexcom Users
"Bullseye! I hate it when I hit a nerve/blood vessel directly on! My first experience with a CGM setup the training nurse hit one so dead on I bled like a stuck pig! Of course I'm on blood thinners too due to the diabetes so that made it even…"

"This video is interesting on the cost of Health Care in the US: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSjGouBmo0M"

Scott Wilkins commented on Rob's group 'Dexcom Users'
"When I graduated from College in the late 1980's, insulin cost me about $10 a vial, and syringes were about $1.00 a bag of 10. Boy I do miss those days for that, but the control sucked."

Scott Wilkins replied to Cocheze's discussion 'High blood sugars - what is it?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've found it interesting that sometimes my BG will at times go to 200 and just STICK there. Bolus sometimes seem to do nothing to budge it from there. Points 2 and 3 seem to be big factors for me I think. Anyway, interesting."

Scott Wilkins replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'S/O on the Unscientific Research Thread: Interesting!' in the group Dexcom Users
"I've got 70+ days out of one before. Replaced it due to the site becoming painful, not a lot but noticeable so I changed it just to be safe. It was still working when I replaced it."

Scott Wilkins replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'S/O on the Unscientific Research Thread: Interesting!' in the group Dexcom Users
"I noticed that this morning when I got a couple ???s, I just wiggled the transmitter around a bit inside the sensor clip and it started working right away. It does seem the connection can get flakey at times due to many reasons."

Scott Wilkins replied to Aussie's discussion 'Traveling' in the group Dexcom Users
"The normal power of a standard Dentist x-ray would not harm the pod at all. They are extremely low power these days."

Scott Wilkins replied to Aussie's discussion 'Traveling' in the group Dexcom Users
"I went through the full body scan, didn't mention the pod and they didn't ask either. Went through without being stopped or any questions and the pod was not affected at all."

Scott Wilkins replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'S/O on the Unscientific Research Thread: Interesting!' in the group Dexcom Users
"I'm on my 4th week on my current sensor. I've noticed in the past couple I've worn over this amount of time, that during the 3rd week I will get ???'s and a few inaccurate readings, but if I stick through them the sensor starts…"

"Nope, not normal. But there is usually a learning curve too, so give it time."

Scott Wilkins replied to Larry D's discussion 'More Test Strip Frustration' in the group OmniPod Users
"Why not accept the older strips? You can get them replaced for free, usually getting more than you started with. Seems you're making things harder than they need to be..."

Scott Wilkins replied to joey's discussion 'getting ready for summer' in the group OmniPod Users
"I always prefer Summer, because of it being easier to get to pod location places without the need to undress so much :) If you have sticking problems, Summer might make that a challenge. Search around these forums for the different products that…"

Posted on August 15, 2012 at 7:30am 7 Comments
