"I would get the new one and hold on to the old one for a backup. I have had receivers fail, and even with Dexcom's fast service, it usually takes 2 days to get it. Do you really want your daughter to be without CGM for 2 - 3 days?"

New Receiver?

Hi...I just placed my order for a new transmittor for my daughter's Dexcom. I was then told that I should order a new receiver because the warranty on the receiver is past its one year expiration and I've met my insurance deductible anyway so it won't cost very much. Does everyone only use their receivers for one year? Ours looks great and works just fine. Thanks!See More

Pen Needles Anyone?

Posted on February 26, 2012 at 8:52pm 8 Comments

Hi...my daughter, Sandie, age 10, was diagnosed 6 months ago..up until last week, she was on only one shot of Levimir a day...She was in her honeymoon period...Now she needs to cover two meals with .5 unit of Novolog. I was thinking it would be easier to use a pen needle because they seem like they would be easier to travel with and I hear the needle is smaller. However, my doctor is reluctant because he says they leak..Can any of you share your experiences? thanks, Marnie
