"I am always misplacing Dexie. Sometimes I attach an old 43" insulin tube to Dexie with tape, string it through the silicone opening on the side and then tie the other end to my bra. Placed in my pocket, I never forget to put it back because if…"
"Played around a little at work and came up with this:
I rounded the corners and put it right below the DEXCOM line and it looks like it was meant to go there! :-)
I would be willing to make labels for anyone that wants one. Just let me know on the…"
"Wish I had a label maker! My label is a piece of paper that says MEDICAL DEVICE, with my first name and phone #s. It's taped on the back with packing tape - lasts a few months :) I also got a set of very flat key finders at Amazon - I keep one…"
"Glad to hear you got your receiver back!
I've got a label maker at work and I'm going to make a label for mine tomorrow. I hope everyone with a Dexcom or a pump takes this lesson to heart and labels their receiver.
Best of luck with your…"
"Thanks everyone! I'll keep it all in mind, but miraculously it was FOUND!!!! Yahoo!!! Hannah and I both learned from this. First and foremost- LABEL!!!! I can't believe I never thought to put my name and phone number on it! You guys are…"
"if it's still under warranty, then my understanding is the 'first' lost receiver can be replaced for about 300. If no longer under warranty, then I think it's about 500, or insurance my cover a new one (full kit). Contact Dexcom…"

"Yes, I've thought about that so much tonight. Very dumb for not having it marked. So easy and never did it. That is my fault. I'm sad for my daughter. I was pretty hard on her and she's only 11. I hate this disease!!!! We have to…"
"Shirley, I'm so sorry. I lost my dex once, thank goodness someone heard it beeping like crazy in the parking lot where my meeting was and brought it in. I'd called so they let me know. I now stuck a label on the back with my name and phone…"

Hannah lost her CGM tonight when we went to a play. I don’t hold much hope of finding it but I have left messages with both the theater and the production company. I’m so sick to my stomach over it and Hannah is upset and crying too. I hate when things like this happen. I feel like I give her so much responsibility keeping up with all of her ‘stuff’, but it needs to be with her and she’s not always with me.Does anyone know how much the handheld part of the Dex 7 costs for replacement?See More
