It’s been awhile

It’s been awhile…

  1. since I stuck a piece of wire into my body with a large needle… and it hurt.
  2. since a device buzzing on my night stand woke me up.
  3. since I’ve needed to carry a receiver around with me.
  4. since I’ve had access to my blood sugar trends.
  5. since my old Dexcom stopped working… I can’t find where I put it.
  6. since I pressed the button on my G4 to turn on my screen. It takes a couple seconds huh?

If you can’t tell, I’m officially back to continuous glucose monitoring. I received a box full of Dexcom goodies yesterday and got everything up and running after work yesterday. I haven’t been back to it long enough to give an official report on my thoughts, but for now, I’m just happy to see my trends… and in color! (What a bonus!).

I’d like to think that blogging about not having a Dexcom helped… but at the end of the day, the cold, hard numbers and a fantastic letter from my endocrinologist probably pushed it over.

  1. The only positive thing I have to say about Dexcom, find another company! I find the Dexcom to be an overpriced, inaccurate, and troublesome device which is undependable. I can count on my device to be 20-60 mg/dl off at a minimum. Dexcom states “That’s Normal” and I should never depend on the reading but should rely on my BG tester readings. To add salt to a wound, the Dexcom Company used car sale staff is just another promise everything and then disappears leaving us high and dry. Again, the only good thing I have to say about Dexcom is … find another company and a better device.
