"No I gotcha. Keep us posted on how it works. I'm just amazed the raw data being processed by the transmitter/receiver didn't change significantly enough to noticeably decrease accuracy. There are a lot of users who don't calibrate for…"

TrueTheory replied to Bob's discussion 'Changing sensor sites without restarting G4' in the group Dexcom Users
"I highly recommend not doing this. Over time, the body starts to "wall-off" around the sensor filament as your cells see it as an intruder. This lowers the relative Oxygen around the sensor. Oxygen is one of the elements in the checmical…"

Get Your Test On! Where else can you make a donation without taking money out of your pocket?

The 2012 Big Blue Test has started! Between now and the end of the day on November 14th, do the Big Blue Test every day to help us reach our goal of 20,000 entries.

Let your TuD friends, and family/friends/co-workers know about the Big Blue Test. If they don't have diabetes, they can still take the Big Blue Test every day WITHOUT testing their BG.

Every time YOU do the Big Blue Test the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) donates $5 to support organizations that help people with diabetes in need.

If you've never taken the Big Blue Test before, it's really easy. All you have to do is:
Test your blood glucose.
Get active for 14-20 minutes (or whatever you can do).
Test again.
Share the results on
Come back every day and tell others!
(If you don't have diabetes, you can still take the Big Blue Test every day. You just don't need to worry about testing your blood glucose.)

Share your results in our Big Blue Test discussionif you wish.

Thanks :)
