Scott Wilkins replied to Annabella's discussion 'Meter = 83mg/dl DEX=63 mg/dl what to do ?' in the group Dexcom Users
"There are always days that just don't work right. No matter how hard you try. Keep in mind that meters are at time inaccurate too. There are just too many factors to take into account to make quick decisions all the time. Just keep trying and…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Scott A's discussion 'How do I know when transmitter as well as receiver batteries are going bad?' in the group Dexcom Users
"At just shy of 1 year I replaced mine. I was told then that my insurance would cover a new transmitter every 6 months. Learning that I'll probably go every 6 months whether it needs replacing or not. For the receiver, I can replace every 12…"
Scott Wilkins replied to Annabella's discussion 'How big a difference between DEX and BG Meter' in the group Dexcom Users
"Most glucose readers are known for worse readings as you go higher. So it's acceptable for a larger difference as you calibrate while high. Just wait and recalibrate when you are lower to get a better calibration."
Scott Wilkins replied to Annabella's discussion 'Extending Sensor Life' in the group Dexcom Users
"I usually get a sense it's really over when the reliability starts to get a little outside of what I find normal. Not all at once though, it's from large corrections a few times in a row. Right now I'm getting about 3 to 4 weeks per.…"
Scott Wilkins replied to Ali's discussion 'Infusion Question' in the group OmniPod Users
"I've only used the Omnipod pumps, but added a Dexcom CGM about 1 year ago. Before the CGM I could get under 7.0 on my A1c, but it wasn't easy. With the CGM I'm at 6.0 now. I don't think the problem is absorption overall, though I…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Ms Ashua's discussion 'Could it be this box of pods?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Personally, I think a CGM should be a requirement along with any insulin pump use due to possibility of issues like this. They should be sold as a "team" of devices rather than individually."

Scott Wilkins replied to MarlboroNick's discussion 'FreeStyle test strip orientation in vial' in the group OmniPod Users
"They are done that way to help keep from getting other skin oils and contaminates on the part of the strip where you put the blood for the test. The other stuff can affect the test, at least according to the FDA..."

Scott Wilkins replied to Paul's discussion 'On hold with Insulet' in the group OmniPod Users
"I had this single click problem before with the older "rubber stopper" syringes versions of the pods. It hurt like a son-of-a-gun, and did affect it's performance a little with me. Haven't had it at all with the new "plastic…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Rachael_elizabeth's discussion 'Having issues with the automatic insert' in the group OmniPod Users
"One suggestion is to keep in mind there are a LOT of places where you can wear the Omnipod. Trial and error is the best solution there. I put mine on a few places at first that I'll never use again. Like the front of my upper arm. I liked the…"

Scott Wilkins replied to clau's discussion 'Dexcom receiver death is killing me :(' in the group Dexcom Users
"It's much more fun hacking working devices, but go for it! I've tried uncompiling the latest firmware that they released, but had zero luck."

Scott Wilkins replied to SherryAnn's discussion 'Holidays and Diabetes' in the group OmniPod Users
"Two thumbs up! I'm a 43 year T1. I've never lived my life with "I can't" and have enjoyed my years despite the "D" thing."

Scott Wilkins replied to Terry's discussion 'Are your lines sometimes smooth, sometimes lumpy?' in the group Dexcom Users
"I saw this the first week I used the 505 software. I saw it occasionally on my old setup too, though arguably less "bouncy". In the past week though, and a very new sensor that I just put on last week, the lines have been extremely smooth.…"

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."
Dec 15, 2014
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."
Dec 11, 2014
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…"

Secret Type 1 cure????

I'm not much of one for explosive headlines, but this one I found interesting.

Read it all, but here's the good part...

BCG's latest feat, though, is perhaps its most unexpected. Several years ago, Harvard professor Denise Faustman showed that BCG could be used to treat diabetes in mice. She demonstrated that the…
