"Yeah, it would be very interesting if when your sensor started having the ??? issues, that was only reported on one of your receivers. That being said, since you don't seem to have any of those problems before the 2 week mark (like many in this…"

"Interesting... You had mentioned: My normal reason for changing is accuracy or more precisely a drop off in accuracy or ??? or the hour glass. Eventually I get one or more of the 3 and finally change it out. I am curious about when those events…"

"Thanks Clare! Good to know that I won't have to switch the transmitter... and who knows, maybe that transmitter is the issue! Especially if you have no issues with revision 2.0.1.158. I knew that you used 2 receivers but I wasn't aware…"

"So I used a new sensor with my old receiver (that has revision number: 2.0.1.104) and so far I've hit over 3.5 weeks with it. Compare that with using 2 new sensors with my new receiver (with Software Rev 2.0.1.158) where I could barely hit the…"

"yeah, I always lower my "Low Alert" at night (and sometimes turn it off when the G4 is really reading lower... since it'll still go off when it thinks I'm under 55) I wish they had a "night" setting for "Low…"

bort269 replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'A Little Unscientific G4 Research' in the group Dexcom Users
"What is the Software Revision number on your receiver? The reason I ask is that I used 2 new sensors so far with my new receiver (that has Software Rev 2.0.1.158) and did notice shorter lifespans than I've experienced in the past year. So I…"

"Helmut, do you have a link for that? That is very sad news as I've found that the G4 (as much as I love it) isn't really accurate until week 2. I would happily pay Dexcom for how long I keep a sensor in rather than have less accurate…"

"I used to have the button problem as well (dealt with it for over a year, I even posted in a thread here somewhere about it) but then I got my new receiver (Software Rev 2.0.1.158) and the problem is gone. I actually didn't notice it until…"

bort269 replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'A Little Unscientific G4 Research' in the group Dexcom Users
"I definitely see the wobbles at night, but I always attributed that to the fact that I move around a lot while sleeping (so I'm putting pressure on the G4 at times). I did however get the random 1 red dot (like the top-left image above the 6pm)…"

bort269 replied to Elizabeth's discussion 'A Little Unscientific G4 Research' in the group Dexcom Users
""Another way to avoid it all together is to think of the sensor and transmitter as a ski boot and binding and always orient the toes facing upward. This makes it far less likely for water to collect underneath." Thanks Clare, I have never…"

bort269 commented on Rob's group 'Dexcom Users'
"I should add that often my G4 has been more accurate than my glucometer! Especially when I used to use a OneTouch Ultra 2, if my reading was very different than my Dexcom I would test again and often had a completely different reading! It…"

bort269 commented on Rob's group 'Dexcom Users'
"@Anna I heard the same thing about the 7+ (don't calibrate too much if it's right) but the Dexcom people I talked to said that it was different for the G4 and calibrating over 3 times/day didn't hurt, it just doesn't gain you…"
