Update: DEXCOM and Other News

Well, this is the weekly update for you. There’s a lot to say tonight (7:37 pm (USA time)).

I changed the sensor from last week this morning before I went to my job. The old sensor was working pretty good.

On Monday, after charging the receiver in the afternoon, I noticed the cover for where the charger goes into the receiver came off and the receiver’s side was splitting off from itself like a sharp hangnail from a finger or toe. This isn’t good! I was told by the Support Tech Rep. to use tape to keep the door on! See the picture for details. The receiver is next to the door/cover for the charging hole.😫

The new sensor is working pretty good so far.

Next Monday, I will be going on vacation for a few days. I will be in touch when I can.😀👍 Everyone enjoy the weekend and week ahead!😀👍

Hi Leah

Which bit is meant to be new? The case isn’t - so is it the unit inside the case?

Looks very very tatty Leah ☹️.

You’re right! The part that is on the actual receiver and the door is the problem— not the case.😀👍

Hi,

I had an hypo this morning and it knocked me off course this morning but, I'm not too bad now. I'm taking grandson on holiday tomorrow for 4 nights so I won't be online. I'll log back in on my return.

Hi ThyroidThora,

Sorry to hear that you had a hypo. today. Can you call your doctor when you can and let them know?

I hope you enjoy your vacation. :-)

They're not interested at the doctors so, I have to self treat and hope for the best.

I'll try and enjoy my holiday and I'll message you on my return.

Take care and thank you for your support and concern.

TT x.
