Scott Wilkins replied to aimeeh2oski's discussion 'How long does the receiver last?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Receivers last basically until they die. Most insurance will replace them on a schedule though whether you need it or not. When will it die? Well, in my opinion it uses a Lithium Ion battery. Li-ion batteries can recharge about 500 times on average,…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Terry's discussion 'System check passed?' in the group Dexcom Users

Scott Wilkins replied to Terry's discussion 'System check passed?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Always calibrate when it's time. Always. Even small amounts matter because it tells the Dexcom which way the BG is moving whick is the main purpose of the Dexcom. Without this data you will end up being worse off."
