"We, my husband and I really appreciate his Dexcom - you have to remember it is only a monitoring devise and sometimes it's right and sometimes it is wrong. But being able to sleep some nights is wonderful. It does allow freedom of not knowing.…"

"Hi Roxy: The Transmitter stays in the current Sensor. The "flapping" electrical contacts assembly does need protection; I use 'Flexifix' to tape down a plastic lid from a long-ago-used-up skin cream container. ("Udder…"

"When you say you shoot in a new sensor at night before start the sensor, do you leave the transmitter out too while it "warms up?" OR do you leave the transmitter in the old sensor (which is still getting readings), then transfer it to the…"

"I don't know which part(s) of the acetaminophen molecule interact with Dexcom's reagents. (I'd SWAG that either it's both ends, together, or the p-aminophenol group.) Your molecule looks a lot different, but only Dexcom can say…"

Meloxicam aka Mobic and Dexcom

We are experiencing technical difficulties with our dexcom and his blood sugars.  Wandering if the meloxicam (medication for arthritis) is the cause.  I haven't been able to find any information to confirm this, however;  the dexcom is showing lows, super lows when the sugar readings are actually 76 or so.  Then again he is having extreme lows for long periods of time.  Diabetes is such a confussing situation - We haven't slept for three nights.  Anyway ... has anyone else experienced a problem…See More

Brad Ringer replied to Watheda Terry's discussion 'Dexcom Sensor failure - 8 total' in the group Dexcom Users
"I have had sensor failures too, but not nearly as many as your husband. If I have failures (Error 1), it is usually on day seven. I have greatly and rapidly changing glucose levels, so I challenge Dexcom and get ???s fairly often. The last session…"

Thank you to all - my husband is a brittle diabetic and we do knowo the meaning of the word...but life is good we are well monitored, edcuated, controlled and blessed. I can appreciated this forum because it lets us know we aren't "doing something wrong"; which can be very comforting. So we look forward to joining everyone in discussions and experiences.
