Seth replied to Scott Wilkins's discussion 'Acetaminophen's real effect?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Acetaminophen really affected the Dexcom7. Readings would skyrocket. With the G4 not so much. In fact I think there is a post around here saying acetaminophen doesn't affect the G4 but there isn't FDA approval stating that."

Acetaminophen's real effect?

As most of us know, we were told to not use acetaminophen when using a Dexcom CGM. And, as been discussed here, there doesn't seem to be much of a real effect when taking a pain reliever with acetaminophen. But, I think I might have figured out one effect. I had recent surgery to repair problem with carpal tunnel issues. I took acetaminophen based pain relievers during the time after both surgeries (one surgery on each wrist) My G4 sensor lasted just over 2 weeks each of those times. The…See More

"There are discussions here on the Omnipod forums that suggest the PDM meter is somewhat high in it's readings. It seems to me this variance might push a wider envelope for the G4 to work in. Just an opinion..."

Scott Wilkins replied to rgcainmd's discussion '"Good" vs. "Bad" Calibrations' in the group Dexcom Users
"I've never found a bad time to calibrate. If I'm concerned about a particular calibration, I'll just do it again in an hour or so. Calibration is a measurement of movement just as it is anything, so not calibrating is much worse than…"
Scott Wilkins replied to Gayle Kodimer Mckenna's discussion 'Extending the life of your sensor - tips for making it last' in the group Dexcom Users
"The ??? doesn't normally mean it's over and out for the sensor. Stick with it for a few hours, if not a whole day or more. You might find it will work again as normal after a while."
Scott Wilkins replied to Brad's discussion 'Seeking Advice - What's in Your Kit?' in the group OmniPod Users
"Pen and needles here. It did take some work to get insurance to approve. My Pharmacy did most of it though, they had to file an "exception" request for special circumstances after the insurance first denied the prescription for a single…"
Scott Wilkins replied to Stress's discussion 'Ever see LOW on your PDM?' in the group OmniPod Users
"It simply means your below 40. The sensor cannot reliably read your level below 40."

Scott Wilkins replied to Linny's discussion 'New to Dexcom' in the group Dexcom Users
"It's amazing what you find out, and what you really don't know about your diabetes with the Dexcom at your side. I just got my last A1C and it wsa 6.1 I couldn't get below a 7 before, and that was with trying as hard as I could! Just…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Anthony's discussion 'Billing Question' in the group Dexcom Users
"The buck stops at your insurance company. They'll get it straitened out for you. Plus what they are billed and what they pay are different. They will usually end up only paying a "contracted" amount, but the supplier usually bills for…"

Scott Wilkins replied to rgcainmd's discussion 'Insulin Action Setting' in the group OmniPod Users

"I was trying to find excuses to not start too. Now I wish I'd done this years before. I just didn't want to be tied to a device. Now I do both this and an Omnipod. Can't imagine being without either now."
