where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hi, I'm getting the dexcom sensor meter put in on Wednesday I was wondering if anyone has it or that has had it let me know if it's a good meter to go with!?

As a CGMS, there is no better choice. I used the Medtronic sensors for eight years but Dexcom's accuracy is unparalleled.

meter used to corelate so any it fine. look at cost of test strip that might help you determine.

Just started my first sensor last week. You should calibrate at least 2x/day minimum by using a regular glucometer and performing finger sticks

Also, the app alerts you that the sensor won't transmit after 1 week and it's accurate. At exactly one week since the start up it stopped transmitting. While some people get more then the three months from the transmitter, it should be noted that you cannot get any extra time from specific weekly sensor

The longer you leave in the sensor, the more accurate it gets. Just restart it. Your CGM is also more accurate if you celebrate it with a finger stick when your glucose reading is level otherwise after it spikes and levels off before coming down. Get the book Sugar Surfing.


I use it and luv it
