Dexcom G4 Platinum Questions

Hello Everyone… I JUST got my Dexcom today!!!I am pumped! I just have a couple questions that I can't seem to find online or in the owner manual and such1. Does it come fully charged? I plugged it in to charge like it said to in the quick start guide, but I think its already charged? It says the entire battery icon will appear grey, which its currently all grey with a little lightening bolt in it… so is that ALL grey or am I waiting for the lightening bolt to go away? Im confused lol2. I see…See More

I am doing well right now. Life has been a little crazy- lots of personal drama on top of working long hours. Having a hard time balancing diabetes and exercise. Hard to get into a regular routine :/ Hope you get into the school you want to go to.

Hey! How is pumping going???

At 3:30am on April 12, 2012, palomino said…

Just saw that you got everything approved! That's GREAT!! I am trying a Ping right now and I think it's really cool. :) I may get one too..

What color did you get??

Bravo on being a featured member Julianna...

Oh, good luck! I still really want the Omnipod- except the size is just a bit large. I know they are working on getting a smaller version out to current users, but it's been in the works for years so who knows when it is coming out. The Ping is my second choice of the three main ones.

Part of me wants a pump, the other part is still going, "WTF, you have diabetes?"

Oh well! Let me know how the Ping goes, or I'll watch for a post from you on the forums!
