"I too went thru a supplier. As hobbit said, tech support or any questions you have will go through Dexcom. Thionk of it this way, they are nothing more then a pharmacy for your supplies and equipment."

"Regardless of where you get the dex from tech support is still from dexcom. The supplier you work with will be the one to bill your insurance, they will the one you call when you need supplies. They will be the one you pay your deductible/copays to."

Dexcom supplier - Advanced Diabetes Supply

Hi all, I'm in the process of trying to figure out my insurance coverage for a Dexcom. When I spoke to the Dex rep today she said that Dexcom itself is not "in network" for my insurance but if I went through a supplier it would be. She referred me to Advanced Diabetes Supply. Has anyone dealt with them before? Are they reputable? and easy to work with? For those of you that have a supplier other than Dexcom, is it a hassle? And is customer support provide by the people at Dexcom or by the…See More

"I made a garter out of some satiny material and 1 1/4" elastic. I put it on which ever leg I have my CGM sensor in and clip the pump right on. It stays put quite well and it's easy to access for sensor alarms. Also, because it's so…"

"I saw it. The whole insulin pump spiel was implausibile. The Blacklist is a watchable, but gory show. I liker James Spader very much as an actor: He shows his ability well, as his character, Reddington, wavers between delightful and deplorable!! Any…"

"SMARTphone tech seems very scary for pumpers as it is hackable. I don't think anyone has it in for me, but controlling my pump and life with a device as accessible as a SMARTphone --no way."

"My cgm can't even find my pump when it's a meter away unless it has line of sight. So unless this girl was in the same room as the police, then I don't think they could find her."

Can this really happen...

So I was watching this weeks episode of "The blacklist" on NBC and I have a question. There was a missing diabetic child, she had a MM pump. The authorities ended up finding her by tracking the RF signal from her pump. I realize this is fiction tv, but is that possible? Are the signals in our pumps strong enough to be tracked as the show indicated? Love to have your input.See More

Hi Sarah,

I noticed that you live near me. I live in a southern suburb of Dayton, Kettering. I am always happy to meet another diabetic, especially one that has been at it for a while and lives in the Great Buckeye State.
