Sick/DEXCOM

Sorry this is late, but I've been under the weather since Wednesday evening. I have a cold.

The system for the DEXCOM wasn't working nation wide for a few days, so no one could get notifications/readings from those who they were following that uses the DEXCOM. Things are working, now, but it took about 4 calls to get the information about the outage. One Rep. thought it was on my end and said I should "turn the phone on and off". That, of course didn't help anything. The second Rep. told me that they had been notified of the outage.

The numbers hadn't been that bad even with the cold. That's a good thing since I always have trouble keeping the numbers under control when I get sick or have an infection.

More to come soon.

Hi Activity 2004 Wishing you well and a speedy recovery. There is nothing worse than becoming under the weather which affects our reaction, saps our energy and simply makes life miserable. Here's hoping you get stronger and back on your feet as soon as practical. Best wishes

Thank you for the get well wishes. Ironically, my numbers are lower than normal today with my cold! I’m really surprised. I actually got done with a snack right now because my number was lower this afternoon.

That's odd. I've been full of cold over the Christmas period and have had low blood sugars as well. Normally my blood sugars go up when I'm unwell so I've been pleasantly surprised. I hope you start to feel better soon.
